Blood Diamonds: Naomi Campbell Gives Evidence at Charles Taylor’s Trial

Sensationally, supermodel Naomi Campbell has testified at the war crimes trial of former Liberian warlord and President Charles Taylor at the Hague.  Naomi Campbell was apparently given a “blood diamond” by Charles Taylor. There has been contradictory evidence as to whether Campbell actually knew the source of the diamonds. She admits receiving “dirty looking stones” from two men she did not know, but other witnesses like Mia Farrow and Campbell’s former agent have given contradictory evidence to Campbell – and alleged that she knew they were from Charles Taylor.

Campbell’s agent alleged that Campbell was “flirting” with Charles Taylor and was disappointed that the diamond was not as big as she hoped.
