A French court on Tuesday jailed former senior Rwandan official, Laurent Bucyibaruta, for 20 years after finding him guilty of complicity in the African nation’s genocide. The AFP news agency reports that Bucyibaruta is the highest-ranking Rwandan to have faced trial in France over the 1994 massacres in which an estimated 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus died in 100 days of mass killings. At the heart of the case against the 78-year-old were several “security” meetings, either ordered or attended by Bucyibaruta, which prosecutors had argued were actually planning sessions for the killings.
