Congolese Rebel Leader Surrenders

Expected to stand trial for alleged war crimes at the International Criminal Court


The International Criminal Court (ICC) has welcomed Congolese rebel leader Bosco Ntaganda's surrender to stand trial on war crimes charges.

Known as "The Terminator", Gen Ntaganda surrendered on Monday to the US embassy in Rwanda after seven years on the run.

The ICC said it was in contact with the relevant authorities to arrange for his immediate transfer to The Hague.
