FREETOWN, Sierra Leone — From jungle clearings to city slums, Sierra Leoneans voted in huge numbers yesterday in the first elections since U.N. peacekeepers left two years ago, hoping to speed their nation's recovery from a 1991-2002 civil war.
"Maybe now things are going to get better," Freetown resident Abubakar Kamara said before voting in the west of the city. "We must vote in peace and show the world that Sierra Leone is a peaceful country."
