Liberian President-Elect Arrives in Ivory Coast


Liberian President-elect Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf has arrived in Ivory Coast Tuesday for her first foreign trip since her election earlier this month.

Few details of the trip have been released. However, the Reuters news agency quotes her as saying she will be discussing how Liberia and the Ivory Coast can work together for regional peace and stability.

Ms. Johnson-Sirleaf was confirmed last week as winner of Liberia's first post-war election after a fiercely contested run-off vote against former soccer George Weah. Mr. Weah's party - the Congress for Democratic Change - has claimed the vote was fraudulent.

International observers say there was no evidence of widespread fraud.
