Naomi Campbell today told a war crimes tribunal she was woken in the middle of the night and handed
diamonds by men working for African dictator Charles Taylor.
The supermodel revealed that she had been given a pouch containing a number of small gems after a charity event in South Africa hosted by Nelson Mandela in 1997.
She described how she was asleep when two men knocked on the door of her room and handed over a package.
'I was sleeping and had a knock at the door that woke me up. Two men were there and they gave me a pouch and said: "A gift for you", Campbell told the UN Special Court for Sierra Leone in The Hague.
'I went back to bed. I looked into the pouch the next morning. I saw a few stones, they were very small, dirty looking stones.
'I'm used to seeing diamonds in a box... If someone had not said they were diamonds, I would not have known they were diamonds.'
