Charles Taylor Connections Re-Sanctioned: Liberian Al Qaeda Connection Still Active?

The Office of Foreign Asset Control has lifted sanction sanctions against Liberia that had been imposed since the days of Charles Taylor. However, on 23 May, 2007 the reimplemented targeted sanctions against those connected to the former regime of Charles Taylor.

This is an interesting note, and suggests that the US is still concerned that there are some active terrorist connections still active in Liberia. Douglas Farah wrote extensively about Charles Taylor's al Qaeda diamond & money laundering connections.

Any thoughts about al Qaeda's current activities in Liberia?
