 The Democratic Republic of Congo plans to prosecute notorious militia leader Germain Katanga, already convicted by the International Criminal Court and who was to leave prison in Kinshasa on Monday, the country's justice minister said.

"He will not leave" prison, Alexis Thambwe Mwamba told AFP, adding that Katanga was implicated "in other cases just as serious" as the one for which he was convicted by the ICC in 2014 -- that of arming an ethnic militia that carried out a brutal village massacre.
