Moses Blah | Ex-Liberian president

Posted: April 03, 2013

Moses Blah, who served as Liberia's president for two months after Charles Taylor stepped down, has died. He was in his mid-60s.

The Information Ministry said Mr. Blah died of a medical condition early Monday at John F. Kennedy Hospital in the capital, Monrovia.

Mr. Blah had recently complained of heart troubles and sent out appeals for medical attention overseas.

Mr. Blah was Liberia's vice president until Taylor stepped down on Aug. 11, 2003. A former ambassador to Libya, Morocco, and Tunisia, Mr. Blah served for two months as president and then handed power over to transitional head of state Charles Gyude Bryant, who conducted the 2005 post-conflict presidential and general elections. - AP
