Naomi Campbell admits in court she was given blood diamonds
London, Aug 5 (ANI): British supermodel Naomi Campbell, while testifying at the war crimes trial of former Liberian President Charles Taylor, said that she received 'dirty rocks.'
The catwalk queen was quizzed about claims made by actress Mia Farrow that Taylor gave the model an uncut diamond following a dinner party hosted by Nelson Mandela in South Africa in 1997.
Prosecutors say that is evidence he received diamonds from Sierra Leone rebels in exchange for weapons during that country's 1992-2002 civil war.
Campbell arrived at the courthouse in The Hague surrounded by police escorts, reports the Telegraph.
Taylor, 62, is accused of trading in 'blood diamonds' to fund a brutal and bloody war carried out by rebels in Liberia's neighbouring Sierra Leone. (ANI)
