Police shuttered the offices of the Liberian branch of the Red Cross Thursday, days after the president dismissed its board of directors amid an investigation into the use of funds destined for the fight against recently ended Ebola outbreak.While President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf's office gave no reason for the decision announced on Tuesday to dismiss the Red Cross's board, the organization has faced a string of graft accusations in the local press.The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) carried out an audit of its member organization in Liberia last year.The closure of the offices will have no effect on the operations of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), which also operates in Liberia but is a separate organization.
