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

I cannot say for a fact if the number was in the tens, hundreds or thousands. The reason for that is that let's remember that you still had Samuel Doe as President of Liberia during this period and accounts that will have appeared in the newspaper, like under President Taylor's government, in my opinion would have been very selective in coming out with numbers and so I'm not sure as to whether the number of people killed was in the tens, thousands or hundreds. I did hear from a lot of people - and there isn't much reading material on this as well, let's remember that, but I did hear that tens and possibly hundred plus persons were killed.
