Germain Katanga and Mathieu Ngudjolo entered their not-guilty pleas last week at the International Criminal Court. From the Herald Tribune:
They are accused of leading militia forces who killed more than 200 people in the village of Bogoro in eastern Congo in 2003, hacking many of their victims to death with machetes. Prosecutors allege some survivors were raped and then turned into sex slaves for the fighters.
Thomas Lubanga, specifically accused of using and recruiting child soldiers, is expected to enter a not-guilty plea as well when his trial begins on January 26.
