The International Criminal Court on Friday sentenced Congolese warlord Katanga to jail for arming an ethnic militia that carried out a "particularly cruel" 2003 village massacre. "The chamber sentences Germain Katanga to 12 years in prison," presiding Judge Bruno Cotte told the Hague-based court in its second sentencing since opening in 2003. The almost seven years that Katanga has already spent in detention will be deducted from the sentence, he said.
