Rwandan massacre suspect arrested
by UPI

HELSINKI - A court in Finland has imprisoned a Rwandan man suspected of participating in the 1994 massacres in his country.

The suspect, a member of the Hutu tribe and a former pastor in the Baptist Church in Rwanda, allegedly was a leader in the killing of Tutsis, Helsingin Sanomat reported. About 800,000 people, including some moderate Hutus, were massacred; many of them hacked with machetes.

The man, who has lived in Finland since 2003 and applied for asylum, was arrested last week after his name appeared on a list published by the Rwandan government of massacre suspects living outside the country.

The National Bureau of Investigation in Finland is working with the Rwandan government and the UN International War Crimes Tribunal to determine if the suspect was involved in the massacres.
