The International Criminal Court in The Hague has convicted former Congolese warlord Germain Katanga of being an accessory to crimes against humanity. But he was cleared of more serious charges relating to atrocities carried out in 2003. Katanga's guilty verdict is just the second conviction in the court's 12-year history.
