Congo agrees to extradition of genocide suspect to Rwanda

The Democratic Republic of Congo on Thursday agreed to the extradition of a genocide suspect to Rwanda.

The suspect, a former Rwandan mayor named Ladislas Ntaganzwa was indicted for his role in the killing over over 800,000 Tutsies. He was arrested in Congo in December 2015.

Asked about the extradition, Congo's justice minister, Alexis Thambwe, said Mr Ntaganzwa would be extradited within one month.

"At the moment, there are just a few formalities to take care of. It could happen at any moment," Mr Thambwe said.
