Inter-Religious Council due to meet Sankoh again

The influential Inter-Religious Council of Sierra Leone (IRCSL), which held direct talks with Sankoh last week, told IRIN another face-to-face meeting was scheduled for today. Last week’s talks were described as an initial meeting which culminated in the release of 31 child captives. The children, aged between five and 18, were yesterday (Sunday) handed over to UNICEF who described them as exhausted and starving. Some 2,000 children have been reported missing as a result of the war, many of them abducted by the rebels.
