Police in Liberia are searching for five young men who are feared drowned after a canoe capsized in a river about 45km (37miles) south of the capital, Monrovia, on Wednesday morning.

State radio reported Thursday morning that there is "crying all over the place" as the search continues.

Local people in Dolo, near where the accident happened, say the boys were returning from football practice.

The scene of the accident is close to the country’s international airport, Robertsfield, and the American-owned Firestone Rubber Company, the world’s single largest rubber plantation. (BBC)
