Presiding judge George Gelaga King looks on in the courtroom before the appeal judgment for former Liberian President Charles Taylor at a U.N.-backed Special Court for Sierra Leone in The Hague September 26, 2013. Taylor lost his appeal against a war-crimes conviction on Thursday as judges confirmed a 50-year jail term against the Liberian ex-president for encouraging rebels in Sierra Leone to mutilate, rape and murder victims in its civil war.
