The International Criminal Court is set to deliver its first verdict, in the case of the Democratic Republic of Congo's Thomas Lubanga.

Lubanga is charged with recruiting and using child soldiers in north-eastern Congo in 2002 and 2003.

He has pleaded not guilty saying he was only a politician and was not involved in the violence.

But the prosecution has accused him of using children as young as nine as bodyguards, sex slaves and fighters.
