Liberia's warring factions signed a peace deal in Benin on Sunday, paving the way for multi-party elections early next year. The signing ceremony came after three days of tough negotiations on details of an accord reached last weekend in Geneva. At the ceremony, Vice President Enoch Dogolea of Charles Taylor's rebel group said his faction will observe an immediate cease-fire.

Ten men charged with plotting to overthrow Sierra Leone's government last year were convicted Monday of treason and sentenced to death by hanging. Friends and relatives of the condemned men wailed and wept outside the heavily guarded court gates after the 11-man jury found the defendants guilty and the judge ordered them to the gallows. The 10, including ex-army officers and rebels who fought during Sierra Leone's brutal 1991-2002 war, have 21 days to appeal.
