State Dept. Issues Travel Warning
WASHINGTON (AP) _ The State Department warned U.S. citizens Tuesday to avoid travel to Liberia.
Fighting in Bomi county and a declaration of a state of emergency by the government on Feb. 8 ``represent a further deterioration in the security situation″ in the African country, the department said.
The U.S. Embassy may be unable to help Americans beyond Monrovia, the capital, the statement said.
