    Tens of thousands of people in Sierra Leone, whose homes were destroyed in a landslide last month, are still waiting to be re-housed. Hundreds of people were killed in the mudslides on the outskirts of the capital Freetown.

    The government fears the area is not safe and has called on residents to leave, but many are refusing to do so.

    Al Jazeera's Nicolas Haque reports from Freetown.
