ICC charges Congolese warlord 'The Terminator'

This photo taken on March 26, 2013, shows Rwandan-born Congolese warlord Bosco Ntaganda in the International Criminal Court in The HagueThe International Criminal Court confirmed on Monday that it had filed charges against former warlord Bosco Ntaganda, nicknamed “The Terminator”, for war crimes in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The judges “unanimously confirmed charges consisting in 18 counts of war crimes… and crimes against humanity,” against Ntaganda, including rape, sexual slavery and conscription of child soldiers, the Hague-based court in a statement. The judges pored over 69,000 pages of evidence before concluding there were clear grounds to charge him with “a widespread and systematic attack against the civilian population” between 2002 and 2003 when he was military chief of the Patriotic Forces for the Liberation of Congo (FPLC). By then, he had become one of the founders of a new militant group, the M23, which had launched another armed rebellion in eastern DRC.
