'Terminator' gets 30 years for war crimes

World | AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE 8 Nov 2019

International Criminal Court judges handed Congolese rebel chief Bosco "Terminator" Ntaganda a 30-year jail term for war crimes yesterday, the highest sentence given by The Hague.

Ntaganda, 46, was convicted in July of crimes including murder, persecution and sexual slavery for several massacres in the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2002 and 2003.

"Murder was committed on a large scale," judge Robert Flemr said as he passed sentence, taking the cruelty of Ntaganda's crimes into account.
