Sierra Leone’s foreign ministry spokesman, Emmanuel Turay says his government has agreed to the deportation of 27 of its citizens from the US.

This, on the day Washington stopped issuing visas to Sierra Leone foreign ministry & immigration officials travelling for business or pleasure, which followed the refusal by Freetown to take back the 27 felons.

The spokesman says they will be given emergency travel documents by the embassy in Washington and brought back home within 30 days.
