SLeone vice president asks US for asylum

A city sign for Freetown, Sierra Leone, seen on August 13, 2014Sierra Leone’s Vice President Sam Sumana has applied for asylum at the US embassy in Freetown and is in hiding while his request is considered, a source close to him said. Sumana, 52, was expelled from the governing All People’s Congress (APC) party this month for what was described as “his anti-party activities, including fomenting violence”, although he denied the allegations and has appealed against his suspension to the party leadership. Sumana “is now in hiding at a secure location awaiting a reply to a request he has made by telephone to the American embassy for asylum for himself and his wife”, a member of his entourage said. The BBC said Saturday it had spoken to Sumana and reported that the vice president and his wife had fled their home in Freetown and requested asylum at the embassy.
