DAKAR - The United Nations said on Saturday it was concerned by the return to Liberia of mercenaries and Ivorian fighters and had reinforced its forces to patrol the long border between the two countries.

Liberian mercenaries were allegedly hired by supporters of former Ivorian president Laurent Gbagbo during the four-month post-election conflict which ended with Gbagbo's capture in April.
