May 26 - Democratic Republic of Congo soldiers advance on rebel positions as they step up the hunt for renegade commander Bosco Ntaganda. Deborah Lutterbeck reports.
Armed Forces of the Democratic Republic of Congo intensify their hunt for wanted rebel Bosco Ntaganda. Clashes erupted after Congolese President Joseph Kabila announced last month that he would try to arrest Ntaganda, known as the "Terminator," who is wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for war crimes and also recently for recruiting child soldiers. Ntaganda, previously a rebel commander, was integrated into the army with his soldiers after an agreement between the DRC and Rwanda in 2009. But in April he changed his mind. The ICC has been seeking his arrest since 2006 on charges of conscripting child soldiers and announced new charges this week including murder, ethnic persecution and rape. Deborah Lutterbeck, Reuters
