Former Liberian Leader Convicted of War Crimes


The Special Court for Sierra Leone convicted former Liberian President Charles Taylor, Thursday, of war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Taylor is the first head of state convicted by a court since the Nuremberg trials at the end of the Second World War, which convicted senior Nazi officials following the suicide of German leader Adolf Hitler.
