Germany Extradites Rwandan Politician to France

Breaking News

Rose Kabuye is wanted for questioning in connection with a 1994 assassination. German federal police said she left on a flight from Frankfurt to Paris in the early afternoon.

Since arresting her on Nov. 9 when she arrived by plane, Germany had been waiting for French police to pick her up. She was wanted under a European arrest warrant issued by the French.

Last week, Kabuye agreed to fast-track extradition and German judges approved her being handed over to France. A former guerrilla chief and mayor of the Rwandan capital Kigali, she is currently chief of protocol to Rwandan President Paul Kagame.
