Monrovia (Liberia), Sep.4 (ANI): One of the six Pakistanis, who was trying to enter Liberia on 'fake' US passports but was arrested, swallowed his mobile phone sim- card while being apprehended.
Liberian Defense Minister Brownie Samukai said the men were nabbed at the international airport earlier this week while trying to sneak into the country.
Samukai said the purpose of their intrusion was still not clear, but it is believed that they were planning to carry out serial terror attacks across the country.
Samukai, however, did not disclose details about the detained men. He also refused to give information on what Liberian authorities believe the men were trying to do and where the men are being held or what charges they may face.
He said one of the suspects removed his phone's SIM card and swallowed it as he was being arrested, PKonweb reported.
Liberia is one of the few countries in Africa, and the only country in West Africa, without roots in the European Scramble for Africa.
It was founded as a colony by the American Colonization Society in 1821-22.Liberia was created as a place for slaves freed in the United States to emigrate to in Africa, on the premise they would have greater freedom and equality there. (ANI)
