Liberia    GOVT LIFTS RADIO BAN
The government in Liberia has lifted its ban on a Catholic radio station and says the suspension of a second radio station will be resolved through diplomatic channels.
   The bans were imposed on the Catholic Radio Veritas and the American-funded Star Radio for broadcasting what the government called negative reports. The move led to a protest from the United States government and a news blackout on government activities from the Liberian press.
   After a meeting with the management of Radio Veritas, the information ministry said the two sides had resolved their differences and it could resume broadcasting. The Liberian president Charles Taylor had earlier said Radio Veritas could stay on air if it restricted itself to broadcasting religious programmes.
