On November 4, 2004 Worldwide Faith News reported, "Global humanitarian agency Church World Service paid tribute to interfaith leaders in Liberia today for being instrumental in helping restore calm following a fresh round of violence in Monrovia that erupted last Thursday (Oct 28) and that was initially reported as being between Muslims and Christians. Following the burning of several churches, mosques and schools in the Redlight and Jacob Town areas outside Monrovia on Friday (10/29), Christian and Muslim religious leaders quickly met, then visited five area radio stations and in broadcasts called for calm and cessation to further violence and burnings."
