The children of slain Angolan rebel chief Jonas Savimbi urged a French court Wednesday to punish the makers of the wildly popular video game "Call of Duty" for representing their father as a "barbarian".The court said it would rule on March 24 on whether Activision Blizzard, which makes Call of Duty, had defamed Savimbi.The offending clip shows Savimbi, known as the "Black Cockerel" by his supporters, rallying his troops from the back of a tank as MPLA government troops advance on them, gunfire rattling all around.Savimbi was known to have terrorized civilian populations and became one of the first warlords to fund his army with so-called "blood diamonds".
