Game Over...Former Rwandan allies arrest Tutsi leader Nkunda

Rwanda and Congo have announced the arrest in Rwandan territory of Laurent Nkunda, the Congolese Tutsi rebel leader, during a joint military operation on the Great Lakes border.

Nkunda has led a Tutsi rebellion in eastern Democratic
Republic of Congo since 2004 and is wanted for war crimes.

He now faces possible extradition back to the DRC to face those charges.
