Germany has arrested the former mayor of a northern Rwandan town on charges of massacring thousands of Tutsis during the 1994 genocide, according to federal prosecutors Tuesday, dpa reported.
The Hutu man, 51, was picked up by police in the Frankfurt area on Monday. He is suspected of either overseeing or calling for multiple murders between 1990 and 1994.
"In particular, he is accused of involvement in a massacre at Nyarubuye in mid-April 1994 in course of which several thousand people were killed," said a statement in Karlsruhe, where the federal prosecutors are based.
