Ex-Liberian President Charles Taylor Serves Sentence in UK

Although ex-Liberian President Charles Taylor asked that he serve the remainder of his 50-year sentence in Rwanda, he was handed over to U.K. prison service representatives Tuesday to finish out the term in Britain. Taylor was sentenced in May 2012 for aiding rebels who committed atrocities in Sierra Leone during its civil war.
