Tanzania Extradites ADF Rebel Leader

Dar-es-salaam-The former head of the Allied Democratic forces a designated Ugandan terrorist group Jamil Mukulu has been extradited by a Tanzanian group.
Jamil Mukulu, the leader of the Congo-based Islamist rebel group Allied Democratic Forces, has been extradited to Uganda to face trial for allegedly ordering a spate of deadly attacks against civilians since the 1990s.
Magistrate Cyprian Mkeha said he was satisfied that Jamil Mukulu would face a fair trial in Uganda, his country of birth.

Mukulu, a former Roman Catholic who converted to Islam, founded the Allied Democratic Forces in the 1990s to topple the Ugandan government. He and his followers swept across Uganda and eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, killing thousands of people—mainly civilians, aid officials say.
The ADF fled a Ugandan army offensive 15 years ago and established bases in the eastern DRC. Since late last year, ADF rebels have killed more than 200 people there.
