A suspected NPFL member is stabbed to death by a Krahn adversary. In April and May excessive violence flares up. The fiercest fighting in the country's seven-year civil strife claimed some 1,500 lives, forcing most aid organizations to evacuate their workers and almost half the population to flee their homes. The situation was sparked off by the refusal to surrender of a dismissed minister and warlord supported by the Krahn ethnic group.
