FREETOWN, SIERRA LEONE - A few days after New Year's 1999, the rebel group Revolutionary United Front (RUF), together with gangs of former government soldiers, staged the most violent attack yet on the capital, Freetown. The mission was code-named "Spare No Living Thing." Thousands of civilians were killed, raped, and mutilated with machetes. The sky filled with circling vultures, drawn to the blood.
Refugees are gathering in camps and flowing into Sierra Leone as rebels may move on Monrovia.
