BONG COUNTY, LIBERIA-Calm has returned to Veleyan in Salala District, Bong Cong County, following a day of violence that left several properties destroyed in the area.

ELBC Bong County Correspondent said:” The incident occurred during a friendly football encounter, when one of the spectators only identified as Eugene, was hit with a stone which led to his death.”

The action prompted a serious altercation between residents of Gomado and Veleyan Towns.
