An Update on Sierra Leone's War Crimes Tribunal

An international war crimes tribunal is taking place in the African nation of Sierra Leone — a legal proceeding all but unnoticed by most of the outside world. NPR's Tony Cox talks with Elise Keppler, a lawyer for the International Justice Program of Human Rights Watch, and Raymond Brown and Wanda Akin Brown, two lawyers defending one of three military leaders charged with committing war crimes during that nation's civil war.
