ICC Rejects Ugandan Rebel Leader Dominic Ongwen's Appeal

This decision means that Ongwen will stand trial for seventy counts, plus other additional charges of crimes against humanity committed in northern Uganda when he was deputy leader of the Lord's Resistance Army.  Ongwen, who was once a kidnapped child soldier, will be the first Ugandan to face trial at the ICC.
