Naomi Campbell called to testify at war crimes trial
NAOMI CAMPBELL and actress Mia Farrow will be summoned to testify at former Liberian President Charles Taylor's war crimes trial, addressing allegations Taylor gave the supermodel an uncut diamond at a South African reception in 1997, the London-based Guardian newspaper reports.
The International Criminal Court has granted a request by prosecutors to summon Campbell and Farrow but it is not yet clear when their subpoenas will be issued.
The prosecution hopes their testimony will support its claims that Taylor dealt in "blood diamonds" when supporting rebels in neighbouring Sierra Leone during the 1991-2002 civil war, which Taylor denies.
