Goma - An international rights group says a former Congolese warlord walks freely in Goma despite a warrant for his arrest issued by the International Criminal Court.

Bosco Ntaganda is sought for war crimes that include conscripting child soldiers. He is also accused of commanding the rebel troops who massacred 150 people in the village of Kiwanja in 2008. Ntaganda is now a general in the Congolese army.

Human Rights Watch said in a statement on Wednesday that Ntaganda was behind the assassination of eight people this year, mostly his political opponents and their families.
