BBC NEWS | Africa | Nigeria returns ex-Liberia leader: "Exiled former Liberian president and war crimes suspect Charles Taylor is being removed from Nigeria after being caught trying to escape custody.If you read the article further, Pres. Obasanjo is asking for an apology by people who thought he was an accomplice to this whole farce. Well I will grant him that he may not be directly complicit; but his wishy-washy attitude towards Pres. Johnson-Sirleaf's demands definitely contributed to Taylor having the time to flee, so apologies? I wonder...
A jet has taken off from the country and is flying him to Liberia - ending his exile of nearly three years.
Dozens of UN troops are patrolling the airport in the capital Monrovia, where they will arrest him."
