• Verdict due in ‘breakthrough’ Rwandan rebels’ German trial


    BERLIN: A German court will rule on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) on a long-running case against two Rwandan Hutu leaders accused of masterminding from their homes in Germany massacres in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. The trial, hailed as a breakthrough by the United Nations, opened more than four years ago, with Ignace Murwanashyaka, head of the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR) and his deputy Straton Musoni charged over a litany of war crimes. The two Rwandans, who have lived in Germany for more than 20 years, were accused of “the full range of atrocities that one can imagine in a civil war”, said federal prosecutor Christian Ritscher.
