BBC News: Can disabled police officers change Sierra Leone?

After a campaign of terror in the 1990s, in which civilians had their limbs cut off by rebels, Sierra Leone has thousands of disabled people. They are generally marginalised by the rest of society but now, the police force has recruited its first ever disabled officers, as Martin Davies reports from the capital, Freetown.

Four men have been taken into the force - a decision welcomed by rights activists who have longed campaigned for an end to the discrimination that disabled people face in Sierra Leone.
