Headline: AFRICA/SIERRA LEONE – Violence on the streets: the Church calls for peace in a polarized nation
Makeni – The recent past, made of civil war and atrocities, causes an alarm signal to light up whenever outbreaks of violence are awakened in Sierra Leone. Clashes have occurred in Makeni, the capital of the northern province, in the past few weeks which have caused victims and many wounded. The Church immediately wanted to call everyone to calm and Apostolic Administrator of Makeni, Bishop Natale Paganelli, expressed concern, calling for reconciliation before clashes escalate into social conflict.
