Sierra Leone

Ahmad Tejan Kabbah, the elected president of the West African nation of Sierra Leone, returned to the capital, Freetown, today. His return follows almost 10 months which he spent in exile after being ousted in a coup. A Nigerian-led ECOMOG force ejected the soldiers who forced him from power in May of last year, paving the way for Kabbah's return. The BBC's Mark Doyle reports.
