Col. Theoneste Bagosora, the butcher of Rwanda, jailed

The architect of the Rwandan genocide has been jailed:



A UN-backed tribunal has convicted Theoneste Bagosora, a former Rwandan army colonel, of organising the 1994 genocide in Rwanda.

Two other former military officers were also convicted by the
International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda on Thursday for their role
in the mass killings of minority Tutsis and moderate Hutus.

“Colonel Bagosora is guilty of genocide and crimes against humanity and war crimes,” the court said.

The tribunal, based in Arusha, Tanzania, accused Bagosora of leading
the troops and Interahamwe Hutu fighters that carried out the killings,
which left an estimated 800,000 dead.

The estimated 250 people who actually financed the genocide, however, remain free. Still, this is an important step forward.
