Top Rwanda genocide fugitive arrested

Breaking News

Ugandan police working with Interpol said they had arrested the suspect, who they described as one of the "top four" men accused of directing Rwanda's 1994 genocide.

Nizeyimana, nicknamed the Butcher of Butare, is accused of ordering the execution of the revered Queen of Rwanda, Rosalie Gicanda, the symbolic head of the Tutsi tribe.

The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) indicted him in 2000 on five counts of genocide, complicity in and incitement to genocide and crimes against humanity.
