A ban on motorcycle taxis has come into force in Liberia's capital, Monrovia, forcing hundreds of commuters to walk to work.

Police set up roadblocks at key intersections to enforce the ban after accusing the bikers of riding recklessly and causing accidents.

The privately owned motorcycle taxis are the main mode of transport in Monrovia and many other African cities.
