DR Congo's 'Terminator' heads for war crimes court

Congolese war crimes suspect Bosco Ntaganda, dubbed "The Terminator", was en route from Rwanda to the International Criminal Court on Friday to face charges ranging from murder and rape to using child soldiers. The first ever suspect to hand himself in to the ICC, he was wanted for war crimes and crimes against humanity allegedly committed during his years as a warlord in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. He shocked the world when he walked into the US embassy in Rwanda on Monday and asked to be sent to the Hague-based court.
