Sierra Leone Working to Revive Tourism
Sierra Leone is trying to rebuild its tourism industry hurt by years of civil strife.

Tourists, in small numbers, are returning to Sierra Leone's white sand beaches and clear blue waters, eight years after fighting ended in the western African country.

At Number 2 River Beach, south of the capital Freetown, a community youth group runs the resort and keeps the beach clean.

Daniel Macauley, the group's chief, says it helps ease local unemployment.

"Our community is basically a tourist destination," he said.  "So we decided to at least start having people, accommodating them here."

The resort employs about 40 villagers. American Jim Dean is a regular at the beach
