International judges have found former Liberian leader Charles Taylor guilty of aiding and abetting war crimes during the Sierra Leone civil war. Taylor, 64, has been on trial in The Hague at a UN-backed Special Court for Sierra Leone for almost five years. He was accused of backing rebels who killed tens of thousands during Sierra Leone's 1991-2002 civil war. Taylor was convicted of 11 counts including terror, murder and rape - but cleared of ordering the crimes. [ full story ]

If UN can brink in to justice Charles Taylor. Why can they do the same to Sri Lankan President who committed genocide.

Well done. Now the war criminals will not have any peaceful sleep for the rest of their lives. The noose is on every war criminal neck and it is the duty of every Tamil citizen living out side the country to make sure that the noose is tightened so that the every criminal can be suffocated till his breath leaves his body for ever. All Tamils should unite under one banner to achieve this.
