Taylor at Hague for War Crimes Trial

As the first witness Tuesday in his own trial, former Liberian President Charles Taylor denied all war crimes charged against himself. Taylor is being tried by the Special Court for Sierra Leone for atrocities committed by rebels under his control during Sierra Leone's civil war.

Check out the New York Times for an article about the trial or see the Special Court's web page devoted to the Taylor case, where you can find a timeline of events, links to the indictment, and streaming video of the trial. The website also contains links to various documents associated with the Special Court.
