A Rwandan businessman, accused of bankrolling and participating in the Rwandan genocide, Félicien Kabuga, has been arrested in France.
Kabuga, who is one of the most wanted suspects in the Rwandan genocide, had been living in France under a false identity in a flat in Asnieres-Sur-Seine, a locality in downtown northern Paris, evading arrest for over 25 years.
The United States had even offered a reward of $5m for information leading to Mr Kabuga’s arrest.
He is alleged to have aided the ethnic Hutu extremists with funding, as they who slaughtered 800,000 people in 1994, targeting mostly members of the minority Tutsi community, as well as their political opponents.
There is still a manhunt for Two other Rwandan genocide suspects, Augustin Bizimana and Protais Mpiranya (pictured above), for their contributions to the atrocities during the conflict.
