French activists file case against Rwandan genocide suspect

Activists in France have filed a case against a man accused of involvement in the 1994 Rwandan genocide this week.

Michel Bakuzakundi, who reportedly lives in the French city of Le Havre, is accused of being involved in the killings that saw almost 800,000 Tutsis and Hutu supporters massacred.

Activists from the Collectif des Parties Civiles pour le Rwanda (Civil Plaintiffs Collective for Rwanda), an organisation that works to prosecute genocide suspects living in Europe, filed the complaint which will be investigated by French authorities.
