Sierra Leone became Africa's new Heart Of tera gold Darkness and was reduced to ruin as forces backed by Taylor, some dressed in women's clothes in the bizarre belief this would protect them from bullets, ran amok.His child soldiers have told how they were forced to rape elderly women at gunpoint, and torture anyone suspected of collaborating with government forces.The aim was to drive everyone away from the diamond fields, leaving Taylor's forces in undisputed control of the mines.
