About 200 U.S. Marines land in Liberia to assist West African peacekeepers in the capital, Monrovia. Liberia's main rebel group says it will transfer control of the seaport to the Nigerian-led peace force, permitting food and medical supplies to flow into the city. Hear NPR's Renee Montagne and NPR's Jason Beaubien.
