BREAKING NEWS: Former Liberian leader Charles Taylor has been found guilty of war crimes, including crimes of aiding and abetting rebels against humanity, murder, enslavement, rape and terrorism, but not the highest of instigating those crimes. Charles Taylor has become the first former head of state convicted of war crimes by an international court since the Nuremburg trials after World War II. While he backed the rebels who killed tens of thousands in Sierra Leone during the 1991-2002 civil war, he was cleared of giving the orders to inflict such terror. The court also found there was a continuous supply diamonds from the rebels to the former leader, in exchange for arms and ammunition.
