Ex-mayor denies genocide charges (Rwanda)





An ex-mayor has denied charges he took part in the 1994 Rwandan genocide when he appeared at a UN-backed tribunal.

Gregoire Ndahimana is accused of responsibility for the massacre of some 2,000 ethnic Tutsis sheltering in a church which was bulldozed.

He was arrested in August during operations against Rwandan rebels in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The US had offered a $5m (£3.2m) reward for information leading to his arrest, but nobody claimed the money.
