Ex-tea boss took part in genocide (Rwanda)

Breaking News

The former head of Rwanda's tea industry has pleaded guilty to complicity in the 1994 genocide.

Michel Bagaragaza admitted playing a role in the massacre at the international Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) which sits in Tanzania.

He said he allowed a militia to use tea factory vehicles on their rampages.

The ex-tea boss had originally pleaded not guilty in 2005 to four counts of genocide charges, but has amended his plea as part of a plea agreement.
