CAMPAIGN TO STOP GENOCIDE ‘KINGPIN’ BURIAL IN FRANCE

PARIS – Rwandan activists have called on France not to allow the burial on its soil of a key orchestrator of the 1994 genocide, Theoneste Bagosora who died in Mali on Saturday where he was serving a 25-five year jail sentence for war crimes.

They said they did not want his grave to become a pilgrimage site for those who supported the killings of 800, 000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus. Several members of Bagosora’s family live in France. – BBC.
