Genocide trial adjourned

 

Arusha - The trial of the former Rwandan mayor and genocide suspect, Mr Laurent Semanza, was adjourned until March 5th at a United Nations court in the northern Tanzanian town of Arusha yesterday.

Mr Semanza is charged with 14 counts of genocide and crimes against humanity, including that he incited ethnic Hutu militiamen to rape Tutsi women during Rwanda's 1994 genocide, when around 800,000 people were massacred in just three months.
