Extraordinary footage of rebel forces outside the Liberian capital of Monrovia is available through APTN Library.
The video was shot by British cameraman James Brabazon for the Kenya-based Camerapix agency as the rebel troops advanced on the city. It shows heavy fighting, casualties and the terrified civilians in the path of the conflict.
Some of the most dramatic scenes are of soldiers who are clearly young children being forced into the chaotic battle. The footage continues to show the rebels retreating from their positions and engaging in firefights with government forces as they attempt to fall back.
It is available for licensing worldwide, For details contact APTN Library:
