French arrest Rwandan doctor accused over genocide

Breaking News

French authorities have arrested a Rwandan doctor accused of involvement in the 1994 genocide.

Eugene Rwamucyo has been wanted by Interpol since 2006, and was dismissed from his job in a hospital in northern France last month.

Rwandan authorities, who allege Dr Rwamucyo committed war crimes during the genocide, welcomed the arrest.

Dr Rwamucyo has denied the accusations, saying he is the victim of a campaign by the Rwandan government.
