UNAMSIL's mandate was revised and increased twice at the time of the adoption of Resolution 1317.[1] The Secretary-General Kofi Annan, in his sixth report on Sierra Leone, recommended a six-month extension to UNAMSIL's mandate and an increase in its military component to 20,500 and 260 military observers.[2]
