KIGALI, Rwanda (AP) – The Rwandan government says it wrote to France to request the extradition of a key suspect in the East African nation’s genocide a quarter of a century ago. Major General Aloys Ntiwiragabo, former head of Rwanda’s military intelligence service, was recently discovered by French media in the suburbs of Orleans. A Rwandan government spokesperson told The Associated Press that an international arrest warrant had been issued for Ntiwiragabo. He is the subject of an investigation in France on his role in the 1994 genocide in which more than 800,000 Tutsis and Hutus who tried to protect them were killed.
