  • SIERRA LEONE: PEOPLE FLEE CAPITAL AS REBELS CONTINUE THREATS - LATEST

    English/Nat Platoons of tense government soldiers are now patrolling the near-empty streets of Sierra Leone's capital, Freetown. Government-allied jet fighters fired over rebel-controlled parts of the capital on Saturday in an attempt to overcome the rebels who stormed into the capital on Wednesday. Since then, terrified residents have left the city in droves, escaping the dwindling food and water supplies, power cuts and destruction of their homes, schools and hospitals. The rebels are calling for the release of their jailed leader and the ousting of the country's President Ahmed Tejan Kabbah. Government-allied jet fighters screamed over Sierra Leone's embattled capital on Saturday, firing a string of rockets into rebel held territory. Plumes of black and grey smoke curled into the...

  • Sierra Leone: Failed development policy | Panorama - die Reporter | NDR

    Abass Kamara came a long way from Makeni, Sierra Leone to Berlin. Now he sits in the Bundestag, the German Parliament, waiting for answers. Germany was one of the financiers who patronised Addax-Project, a development project in Sierra Leone, Westafrica. The project was filled with promises. On a 10,000 hectares estate the local farmers should grow sugarcane, planted in circular fields watered by pivot irrigation. “It will produce 85,000m3 ethanol per annum and approximately 100,000 MWh of renewable power per annum. At March 2015, the project employed 3,600 people”. None of these promises were fulfilled. The fabric is closed. The situation for the people now is even worse. They lost their land.

    English/Nat Britons who fled the Sierra Leone coup arrived back in Britain early today (Friday) after escaping atrocities during the last few days in the capital Freetown. A Foreign Office-chartered jumbo jet carrying up to 400 people from the strife-torn West African country landed at Stansted airport in Essex. The passengers said many foreign women had been raped by rebel soldiers, while others witnessed massacres and looting as Freetown descended into chaos. Many of the evacuees had tales of unbelievable horror and wept with relief when they were reunited with waiting relatives. Some were also unhappy with the lack of support they felt they had received from the British Foreign Office. Almost all were grateful to the Americans for launching what was described as a fantas...

English/Nat Platoons of tense government soldiers are now patrolling the near-empty streets of Sierra Leone's capital, Freetown. Government-allied jet fighters fired over rebel-controlled parts of the capital on Saturday in an attempt to overcome the rebels who stormed into the capital on Wednesday. Since then, terrified residents have left the city in droves, escaping the dwindling food and water supplies, power cuts and destruction of their homes, schools and hospitals. The rebels are calling for the release of their jailed leader and the ousting of the country's President Ahmed Tejan Kabbah. Government-allied jet fighters screamed over Sierra Leone's embattled capital on Saturday, firing a string of rockets into rebel held territory. Plumes of black and grey smoke curled into the air around Signal Hill near the downtown area. Insurgent fighters that battled their way into parts of the city control downtown blocks and much of the city's east side. Amid the now regular thunder of artillery fire, the people of Freetown were set for a Saturday night without electricity, dwindling food supplies and uncertainty about their future. This West African capital has been battered by war for the third time in 18 months and crippled by coups and corruption. Residents of the western district of Aberdeen fear more hard times. SOUNDBITE: (English) "It will not be easy actually, we can only pray that things come back to normal ... the Lord God could come to out rescue" SUPERCAPTION: Thomas Abassie, Community leader Battle-weary and hungry, they have seen the hardships of war too often. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Yes, the rebels come and take the village one time but ECOMOG come and pull them all out - and we are now in trouble still because the village is now missing out - the little children, they have no food, we cannot get no markets." SUPERCAPTION: (English) Abiodu Williams, Unemployed taxi driver Most foreigners have left the city, but a group of Italian businessmen has found itself stranded. SOUNDBITE: (English) "And we tried to locate all our people and but unfortunately the telephone went off -the line went off, they cut off everything and now we are five Italians here, we are missing another 40 Italians - we don't where they are." SUPER CAPTION: Narciso Guglielmi, Italian businessman Government soldiers have set up a series of roadblocks around the western part of the city, prompted by the recent advances by rebel troops. Artillery fire pounded the rebel positions to the south of Freetown overnight. Smoke could be seen rising from the rebel positions early on Saturday. Heavy street fighting was reported around one of the city's main military bases, the Wilberforce Barracks. Clashes were also reported in the Congo Town district, about a kilometre from the downtown area. The rebels are battling not only government soldiers and a civil defence force militia, but also forces of the West African coalition army known as ECOMOG. On Friday, a top rebel commander rejected a proclaimed ceasefire by President Ahmed Tejan Kabbah. General Sam Bockarie, the Revolutionary United Front's top field commander, warned his rebels would intensify their assault on the capital if he were not allowed to meet soon with Foday Sankoh, his imprisoned leader. On Friday, he said an attack on western parts of the capital controlled by loyalists would come within 24 hours. This attack would be followed by an assault on the nearby international airport at Lungi, an important rear guard ECOMOG stronghold. At the U-S embassy, the national flag has been flying at half mast since January 1st, when the last of its staff left.

English/Nat Britons who fled the Sierra Leone coup arrived back in Britain early today (Friday) after escaping atrocities during the last few days in the capital Freetown. A Foreign Office-chartered jumbo jet carrying up to 400 people from the strife-torn West African country landed at Stansted airport in Essex. The passengers said many foreign women had been raped by rebel soldiers, while others witnessed massacres and looting as Freetown descended into chaos. Many of the evacuees had tales of unbelievable horror and wept with relief when they were reunited with waiting relatives. Some were also unhappy with the lack of support they felt they had received from the British Foreign Office. Almost all were grateful to the Americans for launching what was described as a fantastic rescue operation. Two engineers told how they had been forced to abandon their business in Sierra Leone after living for 27 years in Africa. SOUNDBITE: (English) "They are coming out of the sticks, these people have lived in the jungle, they have come out , they don't know civilisation, they are cutting off hands, slitting throats, taking out hearts...it's time to get out." SUPERCAPTION: David Wright, Evacuee The refugees were led by a tiny African boy in flip-flops who was holding hands with a middle-aged white man, both were too distressed to talk about their ordeal. Several refugees told how they had been moved to the Mammyoko Hotel in Freetown for their own safety when the coup began. They said hundreds were then trapped for around fifteen hours in the basement of the hotel while the rebels poured shells on the building. Eventually, the Red Cross negotiated their release and they escaped on an American aircraft carrier to Guinea. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The Americans were excellent, excellent I mean they went in they got us they got us out. There were 6 Americans in there but they evacuated one thousand two hundred fifty (1,250). There was about 40 different nationals, they were just great, they were wonderful SUPERCAPTION: John Bamin, Evacuee More than 200 Britons, together with 75 Americans and 80 other European and Commonwealth nationals, boarded the Boeing 747 from Conakry where they had been taking refuge. SOUNDBITE: (English) " Well basically what it is that the civilian population is at the mercy of armed groups who are not particularly unified and not particularly disciplined, and so there is a real sense of terror in civilians because there is there is nobody who they feel can protect them, and you can't protect yourself, that's the most frightening aspect of it. Q.What about American response, how effective were they? A. It was very effective, it was excellently executed and it was very timely and it was a lifesaver for literally thousands of people. SUPERCAPTION: Jim Heyburn, Evacuee Jim is among the 1,254 foreign nationals who were taken out of Sierra Leone's capital, Freetown, Thursday by US marine helicopter to the American warship USS Kearsage off the African coast. The plane is the third to be chartered by the Foreign Office since the coup in Sierra Leone on May 25. More than 500 UK passport holders have escaped since the government was overthrown by mutinous soldiers, and just six now remain in the country. Officials say that the British High Commission has been closed down and that those that chose to stay were warned that this was the last evacuation.
