Kunti Kamara, whose real name is (might be) Awaliho Soumaworo, is a Liberian with Dutch nationality. He was arrested in France on September 4, 2018 for his alleged involvement in crimes committed during the First Liberian Civil War (1989-1996) while acting as a ULIMO-K commander. He is accused of human rights violations including torture, using child soldiers, murder, slavery, even cannibalism. 

More specifically, the 44-year-old Liberian Kunti Kamara, a former commander of ULIMO (United Movement of Liberia for Democracy) is suspected of involvement in abuses during the civil war in Liberia between 1992 and 1997. According to a testimony collected by the association Civitas Maxima, he would have opened the belly of a man with an axe in order to eat his heart with his men. The complaint also accuses him of enslaving people of an ethnicity different from his own and the murder of a woman considered a witch.
