This document focuses on these Liberian refugees, who are threatened by the situation in Côte d'Ivoire and who have nowhere to go. It includes accounts by many Liberian refugees met by an Amnesty International delegation in Abidjan, in March 2003. These accounts show why they feel they cannot escape from the situation they find themselves in. This is especially the case in the west of the country, where most of these refugees live, and where for months they have often been the victims of forced recruitment by armed opposition groups and government forces alike.
