The UN World Food Programme said it had found hundreds of emaciated people in Sierra Leone who looked like "living skeletons" after being held by rebels as slave labourers for up to five years.

The WFP said thousands of other people may have been been held captive by rebels. "The people we saw looked like a group of living skeletons with bundles of rags on their heads," the WFP's director in Sierra Leone said. Rome - Reuter
