The International Criminal Court on Thursday ruled that a child soldier-turned-Lord's Resistance Army commander Dominic Ongwen was guilty of war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Here are four other people convicted by the ICC:

In its first ever verdict after taking up its role in 2003, the Hague-based court in 2012 sentenced Congolese warlord Thomas Lubanga to 14 years in prison for conscripting children into his rebel army in 2002-2003. It upheld the decision on appeal in 2014.

Lubanga was transferred in 2015 to Kinshasa to serve the rest of his sentence and was freed in 2020.

Former Democratic Republic of Congo militia leader Germain Katanga was sentenced in 2014 to 12 years for a 2003 village massacre.

Nicknamed Simba ("lion" in Swahili) for his ferocity he was then transferred to the DRC in 2015 to complete his sentence.

Handed over to the ICC in 2007, he was convicted of supplying weapons to his militia, which went on the rampage in Bogoro, shooting and hacking to death with machetes some 200 people out of a small close-knit community of about 800.

He was freed in 2020, a day after Lubanga, as a new warcrimes trial was underway.

Malian jihadist Ahmad al-Faqi al-Mahdi was sentenced in 2016 to nine years for demolishing Timbuktu's fabled shrines in the court's first case to focus on cultural destruction.

He was a member of jihadist group Ansar Dine, one of the Al-Qaeda-linked groups which controlled Mali for around 10 months in 2012 before being driven out by a French-led international intervention.

Congolese rebel warlord Bosco Ntaganda, nicknamed "The Terminator", received a 30-year jail term from the ICC in 2019 for war crimes and crimes against humanity, the longest ever sentence given out by the tribunal.

Most of the 18 warcrimes and crimes against humanity charges against Rwandan-born Ntaganda related to a series of gruesome massacres of villagers carried out by his fighters.

He said he would appeal the sentence.
