A commander of the notorious Lord's Resistance Army who surrendered last week is on his way to the International Criminal Court in The Hague, a spokesman for the court said Tuesday.
Dominic Ongwen is one of the main leaders of the Uganda rebels who are accused of killing more than 100,000 people since 1986. He gave himself up to US special forces in the Central African Republic last week.
"His flight took off around 1700 GMT and he should arrive tomorrow morning," Fadi El Abdallah told AFP.
