Sierra Leone Portal

I've started this page for two reasons :- to enable me to understand the conflict in Sierra Leone - a conflict which seems to be almost entirely devoid of ideological content, but with some of the worst atrocities of any of the current conflicts in recent history; and to provide useful links for people who are interested in Sierra Leone.
