Sierra Leone police station turns into snakepit

Law enforcers in Sierra Leone are used to slithering low life but the invasion of a police station by hundreds of hissing serpents has left even some of the toughest officers afraid to go to work.

An estimated 400 snakes, mostly cobras and vipers, have infested the station in the town of Gerihun in Sierra Leone's southern Bo district.

Residents also complain that they are too afraid of the snakes to go there to report crimes.

"(The snakes) have been in the... police station since January and despite fumigating exercises carried out by officials of the Ministry of Health, many of the reptiles have not been dislodged," Town Chief Momoh Fornah told AFP in a telephone interview.
