Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Student Protest and Traffic Congestion

U.S. Embassy Monrovia informs U.S. citizens that a student protest is currently taking place near the University of Liberia and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. There are reports of tires being burned on the road across from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.  Heavy congestion and traffic delays are expected until the protesters disperse.  U.S. government personnel are being advised to consider alternate routes and to avoid large gatherings and unnecessary travel in the area.

Even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and escalate into violence. Avoid areas of demonstrations, and exercise caution if in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations.
