Doubts over French claim on Kagame role in 1994 Rwanda killing

Breaking News

A witness says his testimony was distorted by a French inquiry which accused Rwandan President Paul Kagame of killing his predecessor.

Former Rwandan soldier Emmanuel Ruzigana denies admitting to being part of a group that assassinated the president, reports a French newspaper.

Earlier, Mr Kagame accused France of "bullying" his country after a judge issued arrest warrants for his aides.

Rwanda has cut off diplomatic relations with France over the accusations.

The 1994 shooting down of the plane carrying former President Juvenal Habyarimana sparked the genocide, in which some 800,000 ethnic Tutsis and Hutu moderates were massacred.
