Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has ordered four soldiers and their commanding officer to be punished for their actions during a protest over an Ebola quarantine in August, a government statement said.
One boy was shot dead and others were injured when soldiers and armed police deployed to quell a protest against a decision to quarantine in the West Point neighborhood in the capital Monrovia following an attack on an Ebola holding center.
The Armed Forces of Liberia initially denied responsibility for the violence, but an inquiry board was later set up to investigate the incident.
