Naomi Campbell, the supermodel, has said she was "used as a scapegoat" at the war crimes trial of the former Liberian president Charles Taylor.

Campbell, 40, told the court in The Hague last month that she had been given a pouch of "dirty stones" by two men hours after she met Mr. Taylor.

She denied knowing that they were from the former leader of Liberia.
