International judges on Monday found former Congolese vice president Jean-Pierre Bemba guilty on all five counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity carried out by his private army in Central African Republic a decade ago.

"Mr Bemba effectively acted as military commander and had effective command and control over the MLC forces" which carried out a slew of rapes, murders and pillages in CAR from October 2002 to March 2003, the presiding judge told the International Criminal Court, adding he was therefore "criminally responsible" for the crimes.
