DR Congo 'warlords' deny atrocities at ICC trial





Two alleged Congolese militia leaders have denied war crimes at the start of their trial at the International Criminal Court in The Hague.

Germain Katanga and Mathieu Ngudjolo Chui are accused of directing an attack on the village of Bogoro in 2003 in which more than 200 people were killed.

They face charges of ordering attacks on civilians, sexual slavery, rape, and enlisting child soldiers.

Both deny the allegations and have expressed sympathy for the victims.
