Kamara, a correspondent for the independent radio station SKY-FM, was shot dead by Revolutionary United Front (RUF) rebels on Siaka Stevens Street in central Freetown. The journalist covered court proceedings, including the treason trials that followed President Ahmad Tejan Kabbah's reinstatement. Kabbah was ousted by RUF forces in May 1997 and returned to power in March 1998 with the help of the Nigerian-led West African peacekeeping force (ECOMOG).
