Rwandan mayors jailed in France over genocide

Two former mayors from Rwanda have been jailed for life in France for their role in the 1994 genocide in the country.

Tito Barahira, 65, and Octavien Ngenzi, 58, were found guilty of crimes against humanity and genocide, including during the massacre of 2,000 Tutsis in a church in Kabarondo/.

The two men were arrested in France a few years ago and had both denied involvement in the killings.
