In this image made from television Naomi Campbell is seen holding the bible being sworn in at the U.N.-backed Special Court for Sierra Leone in Leidschendam, Netherlands, Thursday, Aug. 5, 2010. Naomi Campbell appeared at a Dutch courthouse to give evidence at the war crimes trial of former Liberian ruler Charles Taylor after the supermodel lost her battle to avoid testifying. Campbell will be questioned about claims made by actress Mia Farrow that Taylor gave the British model an uncut diamond after a dinner party hosted by Nelson Mandela in South Africa in 1997. Prosecutors say if that's true, it's evidence that he received diamonds from Sierra Leone rebels in exchange for weapons during that country's 1992-2002 civil war.
