DR Congo warlord Thomas Lubanga released from prison

Lubanga has denied abducting hundreds of children under the age of 15 and forcing them to fight.

    The first man to be convicted by the International Criminal Court has been released from prison.

    Supporters gathered outside the jail in the capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo to greet Thomas Lubanga Dyilo.

    He was found guilty of recruiting child soldiers to fight in the second Congo war in 2012.

    Al Jazeera's Laura Burdon-Manley reports.
