Shelling and gunfire raged in the Liberian capital Monday, sending U.N. observers and at least 15,000 others fleeing to a U.S. Embassy compound. The Clinton administration was considering evacuating nearly 500 Americans as early as today. The fighting between government troops and rebel factions that broke out Saturday in Monrovia is the worst in three years. "We hear rocket-propelled grenade fire, mortar fire, heavy-arms fire," Dudley Sims, a spokesman for the U.S. Embassy, said by telephone.
