Rwandan found guilty of murders





A court in the Netherlands has found a Rwandan Hutu, Joseph Mpambara, guilty of torture during the Rwandan genocide in 1994 but not of war crimes.

He was given 20 years in prison for, the judges said, robbing "two women and at least four children of their most valuable possession: their lives".

He had ordered them pulled out of an ambulance, and were hacked to death.

But he was acquitted of the murder of Tutsis sheltering at a church, due to inconsistencies in the testimonies.
