Naomi Campbell testifies she received 'dirty rocks'

Model Naomi Campbell has testified at the war crimes trial of former Liberian ruler Charles Taylor that she received "dirty rocks."

Campbell was being questioned about claims made by actress Mia Farrow that Taylor gave the model an uncut diamond after a dinner party hosted by Nelson Mandela in South Africa in 1997. Prosecutors say that is evidence he received diamonds from Sierra Leone rebels in exchange for weapons during that country's 1992-2002 civil war.

The British model, who had fought to avoid testifying, arrived at the courthouse in The Hague on Thursday surrounded by police escorts.

She did not speak to reporters outside.
