Kinshasa - Kinshasa welcomed the long-awaited arrest warrant issued Friday by the International Criminal Court against Rwandan rebel leader Sylvestre Mudacumura for crimes committed in eastern DR Congo.

“It's very good news. We had been hoping for this arrest warrant for a very long time because Mudacumura has done a lot of damage among our population in the Kivus,” government spokesman Lambert Mende said. - Sapa-AFP
