Länderbericht und Aktualisierungen: Sierra Leone

Artikel zu KDV

22 Aug 1998
There has been an armed conflict in Sierra Leone since 1991, when rebel forces of the Revolutionary United Front (RUF) invaded the country from Liberia and started a guerrilla war against the government.
In May 1997, President Kabbah's government was overthrown by an alliance of members of the armed forces and the RUF, led by major Koroma. A military invasion of Nigerian ECOMOG troops in February 1998 defeated Koroma's troops and re-installed Kabbah's government on 10 March 1998. Koroma and the RUF withdrew to the bush.
