Aid Worker Recalls Horror of Sierra Leone Mudslide Aftermath

When Idalia Amaya arrived at the scene of the mudslide that devastated Sierra Leone's capital Freetown, she was horrified to find homes washed away, entire villages engulfed by mud, and corpses floating down the streets. "Bodies were just being washed down streams ... so many people were crying and wailing," Amaya said.



In Sierra Leone, mudslides have engulfed a whole community and Unicef is helping families affected. More than 400 people were killed, and 600 people are missing.
