Sweden Suspends Rwandan Extradition

Sweden has suspended the extradition of a Rwandan suspected of genocide.

The move comes after a request from the European Court of Human Rights.

 The 53-year-old Rwandan man is suspected of killing 28 people during the country's 1994 genocide.

The Swedish Supreme Court ruled on May 26 that there are no legal obstacles to extraditing the man. But the European Court decided Wednesday that it wants to examine the case further.

Should the extradition be carried out, Sweden would become the first EU country to return a genocide suspect to Rwanda.
