Model Naomi Campbell to testify at war crimes trial

Posted:

Netherlands (WKOW) -- Having lost her battle to avoid testifying, British fashion model Naomi Campbell is due to give evidence at the war crimes trial of former Liberian ruler Charles Taylor today.

 Campbell will be questioned about claims made by actress Mia Farrow that Taylor gave the model an uncut diamond after a dinner party hosted by Nelson Mandela in South Africa in 1997. Prosecutors say if that's true, it's evidence that he received diamonds from Sierra Leone rebels in exchange for weapons during that country's 1992-2002 civil war.
