Democracy is slowly being reestablished after the civil war from 1991 A.D. to 2002 A.D. that resulted in tens of thousands of deaths and the displacement of more than 2 million people (about one-third of the population). The military, which took over full responsibility for security following the departure of UN peacekeepers at the end of 2005 A.D., is increasingly developing as a guarantor of the country's stability. The armed forces remained on the sideline during the 2007 A.D. presidential election, but still look to the UN Integrated Office in Sierra Leone (UNIOSIL) - a civilian UN mission - to support efforts to consolidate peace. English is the official language; Mende, Temne, and Krio are also spoken.
