A. Well, Kono is a mining area. In that whole country,
that is the place we know, the high level productivity for
diamonds, so we believed that if we were able to capture
there first it would have been good for us. That was the
reason why Kono. He said 'Kono should serve as the first
target that we should capture'."
Now, I'm pausing again to ask you this: Mr Sesay, was the capture of Kono in December 1998 motivated by a desire to commence mining on behalf of the RUF?
