Congolese ‘Terminator’ guilty of war crimes

Foreign Affairs Correspondent

A former Congolese rebel leader has been found guilty of war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Bosco Ntaganda, who was known as “The Terminator”, was convicted on all 18 counts, including murder, rape, sexual slavery and using child soldiers.

General Ntaganda fought for various rebel groups that terrorised Ituri and North Kivu provinces over a period of nearly 20 years.

The charges on which he was convicted relate to crimes committed 17 years ago.

Six years later, Jonathan Miller witnessed the aftermath of another massacre allegedly carried out by Bosco Ntaganda’s troops.

He was following today’s proceedings.
