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

"I learnt many things. I killed a man because I stop him and he didn't want to stop. I did the same with a woman who didn't want to stop, so I ran after her and killed her. One experience at that particular time was what we call 'Operation Spare No Soul'. I came across a girl of 12 years old and I cut off her two hands. Just when we came back, we were coming back from that operation, I killed a man inside his house. We were told not to leave anybody alive in the village."
