Rwanda FYI

The New York Times reported on August 12th (click here to read the article), that indicted Rwandan mayor, Grégoire Ndahimana, was finally captured, after 15 years.

He is accused of conspiring to kill 2,000 Tutsis taking refuge in a church and ordering a bulldozer to raze the church to end a siege, during the 1994 genocide in Rwanda. The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda consider Ndahimana among the chief planners and executers of the genocide.

Mr. Ndahimana was caught looking for food in a village in the Northern Kivu province of the Democratic Republic of Congo, where he has been hiding out and inciting the local population to rebel against the government of the DRC.

Score one for the good guys!
