Rwandan President Kagame snubs lawsuit during US visit





Rwandan President Paul Kagame has travelled to the US, ignoring a lawsuit filed there over the deaths of two African presidents in 1994.

Mr Kagame spoke at a ceremony honouring Rwandan graduates in Oklahoma City.

The widows of the then leaders of Burundi and Rwanda, whose deaths sparked the 1994 genocide, say Mr Kagame ordered their plane shot down.

Mr Kagame denies this. The lawyers who filed the lawsuit were unable to serve the legal papers during his visit.
