Lasting scars of Sierra Leone conflict

Help

People in Sierra Leone are awaiting the verdict of former Liberian President Charles Taylor's war crimes trial, 10 years on from the end of the civil war.

The indictment sheet against Mr Taylor accuses him of crimes against humanity, mass killings, sexual violence, abductions and the use of child soldiers, all of which he denies.

Alan Little reports on Sierra Leone's difficult journey in the decade since the conflict ended.
