Sierra Leone: May 22, 2000


RUF released another 54 UN peacekeepers. The RUF is holding their UN prisoners across the border in Liberia. About ten percent of the released prisoners were wounded or injured and the UN estimates that 30-40 of the remaining captives are ill or wounded. In the next week or two, some 4,000 addition UN troops are expected to arrive. No decision has yet been made about prosecuting captured RUF leader Foday Sankoh. He has been stripped of his government post.
