Sierra Leone: July 27, 2000


Britain's efforts to prop up the government of Sierra Leone continue. There are currently 238 British military trainers in the country to provide six weeks of infantry training; they are protected by an entire company of British troops. After this mission is over, the British will maintain a smaller permanent training unit in the country for three years. The British have recently given the Sierra Leonean government five million rounds of 7.62mm ammunition and 4,000 rounds of 81mm mortar ammunition.--Stephen V Cole
