Ex-Rwanda Generals Sentenced For Genocide

ARUSHA (TANZANIA) - The International Criminal Tribunal found two former Rwandan generals guilty Tuesday in the country's 1994 slaughter of Tutsis and moderate Hutus.

The tribunal sentenced former Rwandan army chief Augustin Bizimungu and ex-paramilitary chief of the gendarme Augustin Ndindiliyimana to 30 years in prison for their roles in the widespread massacre, Voice of America reported.

Court officials said Ndindiliyimana was released because of time served, his command over his men was limited and he opposed the killing.

The court also sentenced Maj. Fracois-Xavier Nzuwonemeye and Capt. Innocent Sagahutu each to 20 years for crimes against humanity, VOA said.

The International Criminal Tribunal, seated in Arusha, Tanzania, was set up in 1995 to try people most responsible for the mass killings. Extremist Hutus killed nearly a million Tutsis and moderate Hutus during a three-month period.
