    THE RELATIVES OF FISHERMEN EXPELLED FROM SIERRA LEONE CONTINUE TO RETURN TO ACCRA, THE CAPITAL OF GHANA. LAST WEEK TEN WIVES AND NINE CHILDREN OF THE EJECTED FISHERMEN RETURNED BY AIR FROM SIERRA LEONE. IN ALL MORE THAN 600 WIVES, CHILDREN AND OTHER DEPENDANTS OF THE FISHERMEN HAVE BEEN SENT BACK TO GHANA.

    THE FISHERMEN THEMSELVES ARE EXPECTED TO COME BACK TO GHANA SOON, PROBABLY BY BOAT.

    MOST OF THE FAMILIES HAVE BEEN HOUSED TEMPORARILY AT GHANA INTERNATIONAL TRADE FAIR SITE IN ACCRA. MEDICAL FACILITIES HAVE BEEN ORGANISED, AND MANY OF THE CHILDREN HAVE BEEN TREATED FOR MINOR COMPLAINTS.

    MANY OF THE RETURNING WOMEN CARRIED BABIES. SOME OF THE FAMILIES HAD BEEN LIVING IN SIERRA LEONE FOR SEVERAL YEARS, AND THE ORDER TO LEAVE HAD COME AS A SURPRISE.

    MOST OF THE RELATIVES ARE BEING SENT BACK TO THEIR HOME TOWNS, WHERE THEY WILL WAIT FOR THE MEN TO RETURN.
