Former Congolese leader Bosco Ntaganda sentenced to 30 years for crimes by ICC

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

Bosco Ntaganda, nicknamed "Terminator", was convicted on 18 counts including murder, rape, sexual slavery and using child soldiers.

Judges at the International Criminal Court (ICC) found in July that fighters loyal to Ntaganda had carried out gruesome massacres of civilians.

The sentence is the longest the ICC has handed down.
