The Hague - Prosecutors at the International Criminal Court are urging judges to convict two Congolese warlords of commanding fighters who wiped out a village in 2003, killing more than 200 civilians, including women children and the elderly.

Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda said on Tuesday that evidence presented at the trial of Germain Katanga and Mathieu Ngudjolo proved they "are guilty beyond any doubt" of carefully planning and executing the 24 February 2003, attack on the village of Bogoro.

Bensouda made his statement at the start of closing statements in Katanga and Ngudjolo's trial, which began in November 2009.

The two men insist they are innocent. Their defence lawyers will sum up their case later this month.
