France rejects Rwanda genocide suspect’s extradition

A French appeals court on Wednesday rejected a request by Rwanda to extradite a doctor wanted on suspicion of taking part in its 1994 genocide, ruling that he would not be guaranteed a fair trial. A lawyer for Eugene Rwamucyo, who was arrested in May under a 2006 international warrant issued at Rwanda’s request, said he had been released from custody. Rwamucyo denies any involvement in the 100-day massacre in Rwanda, in which an estimated 800,000 ethnic Tutsis and politically moderate Hutus were killed by Hutu militia and soldiers.
