80 Years Sought for Charles Taylor

Prosecutors demanded an 80-year sentence for former Liberian President Charles Taylor following his war crimes conviction last week. Taylor was recently found guilty of 11 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity, including aiding and abetting murder and rape, for his part in arming Sierra Leone rebels in exchange for "blood diamonds" mined by slave laborers.
