Taylor’s reaction:

Former Liberian President Charles Taylor just found guilty of multiple war crimes and is showing no emotion.

Charles Taylor, in trademark, expensively tailored double breasted suit, unruffled, calm, occasionally flicks eyes down to papers on desk

Charles Taylor is calm, very occasionally glances at judge as gruesome account of 'operation no living thing' is given

Charles Taylor guilty: good. Visited Sierra Leone years after truce, still chilled by tales of carnage in every village http://t.co/qQdKow18

Good to see Charles Taylor convicted at Hague. That court could sit for years and still never deal with all the war criminals out there!
