The Hague judges await Charles Taylor apology

Judges at the war crimes trial of Liberia's former president Charles Taylor are waiting to see if he will apologise as ordered for walking out earlier this week.

Defence sources say Mr Taylor will continue his boycott but his lawyer will appear.

The judges have said they could impose sanctions if lawyer Courtenay Griffiths does not apologise for walking out.

The BBC's Peter Biles reports.
