President Charles Taylor, in power since July 1997 through democratic elections, was forced to declare "a state of emergency" on 8 February as government forces repulsed a massive offensive by the Liberians United for Reconciliation and Democracy (LURID) rebels on the town of Klay, 22 miles north of Monrovia.
