The trial of two alleged Congolese militia leaders charged with war crimes is due to begin at the International Criminal Court in The Hague, reports BBC. Germain Katanga and Mathieu Ngudjolo Chui are accused of directing an attack on a village 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 charges and have expressed sympathy for the victims.
