A former Congolese rebel leader has been sentenced to 30 years for war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Fighters loyal to Bosco Ntaganda carried out gruesome massacres of civilians. Ntaganda, nicknamed “Terminator”, was convicted on 18 counts including murder, rape, sexual slavery and using child soldiers.

The sentence is the longest that the ICC has handed down. Ntaganda was the first person to be convicted of sexual slavery by the ICC and overall the fourth person the court has convicted since its creation in 2002.

The Rwanda-born 46-year-old former rebel has been involved in numerous armed conflicts in both Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
