Sierra Leone votes for end to war

Freetown - Sierra Leonians voted in a final round of elections to restore civilian rule to their war-weary country, apparently undeterred by a spate of attacks and atrocities designed to discourage polling. Rebels killed 35 people on Tuesday in a vehicle travelling outside the second town of Bo. In Freetown, voting in the presidential run-off between Ahmad Tejan Kabbah, 64, and John Karefa-Smart, 81, started slowly but soon picked up and long queues formed outside polling stations. Reuter
