Uganda nabs Rwandan genocide suspect

Ugandan police have arrested one of the four most wanted suspects from Rwanda's 1994 genocide after he entered the country by bus from the Democratic Republic of Congo. The former Rwandan intelligence officer is accused of organising the slaughter of civilians and ordering the murder a former queen of Rwanda. The Ugandans have now extradited him to Arusha in northern Tanzania to face trial at the UN International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda. The US offered $5 million for his capture, though it is not clear who will receive this. The UN court charges that the suspect prepared lists of ethnic Tutsi intellectuals and those in authority in Rwanda before handing them over to armed groups who killed them.
