Naomi Campbell came out fighting on Tuesday night against suggestions that she had lied during her testimony to the war crimes trial of Charles Taylor, insisting that she had "nothing to gain" from telling anything other than the truth.

"I've no motive here. Nothing to gain. I am a black woman who has and will always support good causes especially relating to Africa," the supermodel said, in a statement that was released after her former agent Carole White and the actress Mia Farrow finished giving their evidence.

Both women contradicted Campbell's account that she did not know who gave her the pouch of diamonds after a party hosted by Nelson Mandela in September 1997.
