LRA commander Dominic Ongwen arrives at Hague court

A Ugandan commander of the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) has arrived in The Hague to be tried for war crimes.

Dominic Ongwen, who was kidnapped and groomed as a child soldier by the LRA at the age of 10, was arrested in the Central African Republic (CAR) earlier in January after a four-year search.

The LRA has killed more than 100,000 people mainly in Uganda, claiming to fight for a biblical state.

The BBC's Anna Holligan reports.
