Kunti 'Kunti-K' Kamara on trial for Liberian war crimes

The trial of Kunti Kamara, 48, a former commander for the United Liberation Movement of Liberia, began in France. 'Kunti-K' is being prosecuted under the legal principle of universal jurisdiction, which means crimes committed against all of humanity know no borders and can be tried anywhere in the world. Among the many gruesome allegations against Kamara is the torture and murder of a man who was said to have had his elbows tied together behind his back before Kamara cut open his rib cage, removed his heart and ate it.
He is responsible for the 1993 “ngisakornjai” murders in which six men were murdered on his orders.
