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

Well, the RUF movement at the Kangari Hills, the main things we were doing, we used to set ambush, attack civilian positions, took food from them. We would abduct civilians, girls and boys, some of them were the age of 12, 15 and also 16. Then again we would make road blocks, we would set ambush. If the ambush failed nobody would survive, we would kill everybody. We would burn houses at that time.

For example, where we were at the Kangari Hills where we set our ambush, the civilians called that place Sankoh Garage. That area you will see all types of burnt vehicles. If you got to that place you will see all types of human skulls.
