In the 1994 Rwandan genocide Hutu militias killed over 800,000 Tutsis over the course of 100 days. One of the suspects, Félicien Kabuga, was arrested on May 16th in Paris for his involvement. Prosecutors are indicting him for genocide, incitement to commit genocide and arming the Hutu militias. Kabuga is protesting his innocence: “All of this is lies. I have not killed any Tutsis. I was working with them.”
