Rwandan genocide survivor groups have welcomed the arrest in France of one of the most wanted men accused of being behind the mass killings.
Félicien Kabuga, 84, was detained near Paris, where he had been living under a false identity.
He is alleged to have been the main financier of the ethnic Hutu extremists who slaughtered 800,000 people in 1994.
“Every genocide survivor is happy he is arrested,” the leader of widows’ group Avega told the BBC.
“Everyone has been waiting for this news because he was at the top of suspects list. It is a good thing that he is going to face justice,” Valerie Mukabayire added in an interview with the BBC Great Lakes service.
