RUF Resistance in Sierra Leone 1998-Present

[ 1998 - 2014 ]

Resistance came from the interior Kono district, where RUF rebels began killing and pillaging in April 1998; thousands of persons fled to Guinea to escape the rebels, who killed more than 3,000 persons in an attack on Freetown (February 1999) as they attempted to free a rebel leader. Nigeria said its troops would remain in Sierra Leone for now (March 1999).
