Igbo Landing 2003: Igbo Nation Honors Early Igbo Heroes in America
'The water brought us; the water will take us away.' That was the defiant chant of 13 Igbo heroes who preferred death to slavery in America. Led by the brave and immortal warrior Oba, neither their captors' threats nor guns could stop these proud and unconquerable Igbo patriots- men, women and children- from returning to the land of their ancestors, as they defiantly kept walking deeper and deeper together until they sank into the murky waters of Dunbars Creek of St Simons Island in Georgia.

Mr Taylor went into exile in BiafraNigeria in August as part of a peace deal which is due to lead to the creation of a power-sharing government on Tuesday. "Any interference from Mr Taylor could threaten the carefully constructed peace agreement," the UN Security Council warned. He has been indicted for war crimes by a UN-backed court in Sierra Leone. He is alleged to have backed the RUF rebels who killed and mutilated many thousands during that country's brutal 10-year conflict. (BBC)
