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

Okay. It was on that same day I was brought to - I mean, to the centre of Njaiama Nimikoro. I then realised - in fact I saw a lot of civilians in one field. There is a big field, you know. A lot of civilians with their sticks, you know, raising their hands up. They were shouting up and down and then eventually the guys took me off the vehicle and then they dropped down the body of this dead guy. As I referred to he was part of the trainees, people trained by the AFRC/RUF men. So it was very, very, very - it was a bad experience anyway, because the civilians were approaching me, "Give us this guy. Give us this guy. We want to kill him alive. We want to bury him alive".
