KIGALI – Rwanda prosecution officials said say the German government has extradited a suspect in the 1994 Rwandan genocide to Rwanda to face charges.

Jean Twagiramungu’s arrest in the German city of Frankfurt two years ago came more than two decades after the genocide in Rwanda, where more than 800,000 ethnic Tutsis and moderate Hutus were slaughtered by extremist Hutus.


Twagiramungu has been battling extradition request from Kigali, arguing he cannot receive fair trial in Rwanda.

He was handed over Friday to Rwandan police for prosecution in Rwanda by German officials at Kigali International Airport. Rwanda prosecution spokesman Justin Nkunsi told Associated Press that Twagiramungu faces charges of the genocide and extermination as a crime against humanity.
