The 51-year-old is the incoming prosecutor for the International Criminal Court. Her nine-year term will see some of the last century's worst criminals - Ivory Coast's Laurent Gbagbo, Sudan's Omar Hassan al-Bashir, and the fugitive Lord's Resistance Army leader Joseph Kony. Bensouda is more than fit for the job, with experience prosecuting the leaders of the Rwandan genocide in 1994.
