Rwanda Requests Extradition of Genocide Suspect
Legal authorities in Rwanda have officially requested the extradition of a citizen who is under arrest in Sweden for suspected genocide in his home country.
The man appears on the list of the one hundred most wanted war criminals after the Rwanda genocide in 1994. Swedish police arrested the man at the Rwandan Embassy in Täby, north of Stockholm in July.
Residing in Denmark, the man has previously been detained for similar accusations but was released due to a lack of evidence. He was subsequently awarded over US$ 200.000 in damages.
