Method and the Madness - From a Photo essay by Robert Knoth.
Several hundred thousand Sierra Leonean refugees are struggling
to escape a spreading war in this deeply impoverished region of
West Africa.The refugee encampment of Katkama was burned by Guineans
who feared it had been infiltrated by rebel insurgents. But the
refugees are not, ultimately, victims of ethnic hatred or of ideological
war, but rather of rampant thievary in a mineral-rich region that
has been consumed by organized crime.
