Eating people is wrong

The first member of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) to be brought to trial at the International Criminal Court in the Hague is Dominic Ongwen, 40.

He is accused of ordering his men to kill, cook and eat civilians and a total of 70 war crimes and crimes against humanity.

He is said to have committed the atrocities in the northern Ugandan town of Lukodi.

Ongwen was himself abducted by the LRA when he was 10 years old, rising through the ranks to become one of its commanders.

He is believed to have been a deputy of LRA commander Joseph Kony, who is still on the run.
