Germany Arrests Rwandan Presidential Aid

FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) – German police say that Rose Kabuye, chief of protocol for Rwanda’s president and sought for questioning about what sparked her country’s genocide, has been arrested at Frankfurt’s airport.

Lef Forster, Kabuye’s lawyer, told The Associated Press on Sunday that she was arrested earlier in the day and had agreed to be transferred to France, where she will be questioned about the attack on the plane of former Rwandan President JuvDenal Habyarimana in April 1994.

That crash is widely considered to have sparked the genocide that exploded across the African nation that year.
