Newspaper critical of Liberia's new president George Weah raided, all employees arrested

Court officials in Liberia raided the offices of a newspaper critical of President George Weah's government and arrested all its employees on Monday.

Editors, journalists and even the caretaker at Frontpage Africa were reportedly detained for several hours at the civil court in the capital, Monrovia.

The arresting officers said they were acting in relation to a $1m ( £700,000) civil lawsuit filed against the paper over publishing allegedly misleading material.

Frontpage Africa said the arrest of its staff was an attack on press freedom and part of a government attempt to discredit its investigative journalism.

Mr Weah, a former international football star, was sworn in as president in January, defeating then Vice-President Joseph Boakai with more than 60% of the vote.
