US Says it Will Facilitate Bosco Transfer to the Hague

At today's State Department news briefing, Victoria Nuland, State Department spokesperson, said:
I can confirm that Bosco Ntaganda, ICC indictee and the leader of one of the factions of the M23 rebel group and the subject of an International Criminal Court arrest warrant, walked into the U.S. Embassy in Kigali this morning. He specifically asked to be transferred to the ICC in The Hague.
We are consulting with a number of individuals and governments, including the government of Rwanda, in facilitating his request.
She also said:
I am not in a position to speak for him why he asked us to make his transfer to the Hague. We are working to facilitate his request to be transferred to the Hague. We strongly support the ICC and their investigation on the atrocities committed in the DRC.
