Col. Theoneste Bagosora, the main organizer behind the 1994 slaughter of Tutsis and moderate Hutus in Rwanda, has been convicted of genocide and sentenced to life in prison:
Col. Theoneste Bagosora was found guilty of crimes against humanity, and the court said he used his position as director of Rwanda’s Ministry of Defense to direct Hutu soldiers to kill Tutsis and moderate Hutus.
The court said that Bagosora, who had authority over the Rwandan military, was responsible for the deaths of former Rwandan Prime Minister Agathe Uwilingiyimana and 10 Belgian peacekeepers who tried to protect her as she was killed at the outset of the genocide.
One million people were murdered in 100 days. 333 people per hour. Five people per minute. It was preventable. We did nothing.
