U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday said he welcomed the removal of Congolese warlord Bosco Ntaganda from Rwanda to the International Criminal Court in the Hague.

"This is an important moment for all who believe in justice and accountability," Kerry said in a statement.

Ntaganda gave himself up to the U.S. embassy in Kigali, Rwanda on Monday after a 15-year career that spanned a series of Rwandan-backed rebellions in eastern Congo. He asked to be sent to the ICC, where he faces war crimes charges.
