Bosco Ntaganda, a Rwandan-born warlord nick-named “the Terminator”, said he is innocent of the charges brought against him at the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Ntaganda allegedly led rebels in eastern Congo in brutal tribal fighting during 2002-3. The ICC charges against him include, murder, rape, pillaging and the use of child soldiers.

He had been one of the ICC’s longest-sought fugitives until he voluntarily turned himself in at the US Embassy in Kigali last week.
