The Trial of Charles Taylor

Charles Taylor, the former President of LIberia, refused to appear at his trial yesterday before the International Criminal Court in The Hague.  The New York Times reported that he was protesting new security rules that require him to be blindfolded and chained while traveling between prison and the court.  Taylor's trial began in January and was to have resumed yesterday after a one-month recess.
