Judges found Taylor helped the rebels obtain weapons in full knowledge they would likely be used to commit terrible crimes, in exchange for payments of "blood diamonds" often obtained by slave labou...

Sierra Leone's President Ernest Bai Koroma is heading to China for a five day state visit. Koroma says his trip is to principally thank the Chinese government and people for the tremendous assistance they provided for his country during the Ebola outbreak. It was the plane load of Chinese medical personnel and drugs from China following the outbreak, that galvanized international support for the country's drive to stop Ebola. Sierra Leone and China relations span over 45 years. Beijing has been helping the Sierra Leone develop its infrastructure, agriculture, health and education sectors. During his trip President Koroma says he also looks forward to deepening the partnership with China.

SOUNDBITE (English) Arthur Saye, Charles Taylor's brother-in-law: "This is not transparent at all because this court should let President Taylor have access to his lawyers and his family members.

How is the spread now different from how it began?
