Liberia's Taylor Captured

From the Washington Post:

Fugitive former Liberian president Charles Taylor landed here Wednesday afternoon after Nigerian authorities took him into custody early this morning in a border town with Cameroon and repatriated him.
Taylor, 58, who had vanished from a guarded government compound in southeastern Nigeria Tuesday, landed here in a three-engine Nigerian presidential jet aircraft in a driving rain as U.N. peacekeepers were preparing to arrest and transport him to Sierra Leone, where he faces war crimes and other charges before a United Nations-backed tribunal.
