UN Cops Beat Up Two Local Journos, Others

The United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) has launched an investigation into reports that its troops beat and assaulted two journalists covering student protests this week, the UN said in a statement received Friday.
I know a guy who knows one of the victims, a photographer. I have also heard from two separate expat sources--one of them an UNMIL employee--that UN cops helped beat the crap out of some unruly people before, during, and after the Lonestar v. Cote d'Ivoire game a few weeks ago. But I haven't seen that story in the papers.
