    14 minutes is about the only amount I could post in a video on here, again sorry about the full video being age restricted on YouTube.

    Almost certain it’s from 1999, during the Freetown offensive by the R.U.F. (Revolutionary United Front) rebels.

    There’s something about African conflicts that’s always so, so brutal.

    “Cry Freetown is a 2000 documentary film directed by Sorious Samura. It is an account of the victims of the Sierra Leone Civil War and depicts the most brutal period with the Revolutionary United Front rebels capturing the capital city. The film also documents the Nigerian army summarily executing suspects.
    Initial release: February 3, 2000
    Director: Sorious Samura”

    I’m a veteran of 22 years (British army), I’ve fought in NI, Bosnia, Kosovo, Iraq and Afghanistan, but Sierra Leone was the scariest, fuelled on alcohol and drugs, you could hit them multiple times and they would keep coming because they were high. They are truly barbaric in how they are to their fellow human being, their use of child soldiers was disgusting.
