By Thomas Escritt THE HAGUE (Reuters) - Congolese warlord Bosco Ntaganda pleaded "Not guilty" on Wednesday to crimes including the rape of child soldiers in a campaign of pillage and murder in northeast Congo's Ituri province in the early 2000s. The Rwandan-born Ntaganda is accused by prosecutors at the International Criminal Court (ICC) of conspiring to expand the power of the Hema ethnic group and seize the province's vast oil, diamond and gold wealth for himself. One alleged co-conspirator is Thomas Lubanga, who is serving a 14-year prison sentence after becoming the court's first convicted defendant in 2012.
