Breaking News

A French judge has issued international arrest warrants for nine Rwandans suspected of plotting the 1994 killing of a former president, which led to genocide in Rwanda.

Judge Jean-Louis Bruguiere issued the warrants in Paris this week. The nine named suspects include Rwandan armed forces chief James Kabarebe and Army Chief of Staff Charles Kayonga, as well as two men, Franck Nziza and Eric Hakiziman, suspected of firing the missile that downed then-President Juvenal Habyarimana's airplane.
