Sierra Leone: February 15, 2001


The last battalion of Indian troops has left. Indians served in Sierra Leone since December, 1999.

There are only 10,500 peacekeepers in the country, half what the UN has authorized. As a result, RUF rebels still control much of the northern and eastern portions of the country.
