Sierra Leone: October 24, 2000


Jordan announced it is withdrawing its 1,800 peacekeepers. The Jordanian troops are among the best troops in the UN force and their loss will be felt. Jordan did not say why it was pulling out, but it had long complained that NATO nations should contribute more troops to operations like this. The UN has been having a hard time getting nations to contribute troops to UNAMSIL, and wants to increase the force from 13,000 to 20,500 troops.
