Swiss prosecutors cross-examine ex-Liberian rebel commander

In Bellizona, Switzerland, prosecutors on Monday cross-examined Alieu Kosiah, a former Liberian rebel commander accused of committing gross human-rights abuses during the first Liberia civil war.

Kosiah was arrested six years ago by Swiss authorities after his alleged victims filed charges against him in Switzerland.

He is standing trial on 25 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity including rape.

Journalist Anthony Stevens is covering the trial in Bellinzona, from where he joins us.
