Liberia is officially assuming full responsibility for national security in the country on Friday, taking over from the UN mission UNMIL.

The mission was established in 2003 following years of civil war and conflict in the West African country.

Five thousand new police officers have been trained in order to support the transition.

Olive Thomas has been talking to UNMIL’s Russell Geekie.
