Thomas Lubanga's guilty verdict read out at ICC

The International Criminal Court (ICC) has found the Congolese warlord, Thomas Lubanga, guilty of recruiting and using child soldiers.

It is the court's first verdict since it was set up 10 years ago. He will be sentenced at a later hearing.

The charges relate to a conflict in north-eastern Democratic Republic of Congo between 2002 and 2003.

The prosecution accused him of using children as young as nine as bodyguards, sex slaves and fighters.
