Nick Gowing reports for Channel 4 News on the uncertain elections planned to take place in war-ravaged Sierra Leone. The video includes shots of a skeleton hanging from a post and a skull in the road; footage of a tent city for the internally displaced and the homeless; a shot of Captain Strasser; images of Brigadier Bio; footage of destroyed buildings along a road; footage of RUF leader Foday Sankoh at a rebel camp; and shots of government troops preparing their armed jeep for patrol.
