Second Rwanda war crimes suspect, found in France

France has opened an investigation after a former Rwandan spy chief, wanted for alleged crimes against humanity, was found in France by an investigative news organisation.

Aloys Ntiwiragabo was tracked down by Mediapart to Orleans, a city about 100km south-west of Paris, after the international agencies failed to find him.

Ntiwiragabo is a former Rwandan military official, identified by the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) as one of the architects of the country’s 1994 genocide which claimed 800,000 lives.

Neither the ICTR, Interpol, France nor Rwanda were actively seeking him and had dropped arrest warrants years ago.
