Words in the news: blood diamonds

I read a lot in the news about Naomi Campbell. She seemed to be in all the newspapers after her recent appearance in court. She was connected with an interesting piece of vocabulary.

The diamonds she was allegedly given as a present can be called ‘blood diamonds‘. ‘Blood diamonds‘ are diamonds that have been mined in a war zone and used to pay for equipment for the invading army.
