The transcripts of the trial of Charles Taylor, former President of Liberia. More…

We captured, there's one grenade which was like a cream bottle. That was my first time of seeing such a grenade. It was with Colonel Maxwell. It was like blue in colour. When you see it if you do not know that it's a weapon you would think that it's a kind of Vaseline. It was a different grenade. I had never seen it before. That was my first time of seeing that grenade, together with AK-47s, RPG bombs and their mortars, GPMGs. In fact, the soldiers and the mercenaries, all of them who got up that hill, most of them couldn't return because our firing support was very strong. They were unable. Most of them died there including the colonel himself. He lost his life.
