U.N. pick tied to war crimes . . . . 24

The Washington Times Weekly - - Page Two -

The Rwan­dan gen­eral se­lected as deputy com­man­der of the U.N. peace­keep­ing mis­sion in Dar­fur is sus­pected of com­mit­ting war crimes re­lated to the 1994 Rwan­dan geno­cide, U.N. of­fi­cials say. Maj. Gen. Karenzi Karake, 46, was ac­cused by Bel­gian-based United Demo­cratic Forces-Inkingi, an um­brella group of Rwan­dan op­po­si­tion­ists, of or­der­ing po­lit­i­cal as­sas­si­na­tions be­fore the 1994 geno­cide, and af­ter­ward, of or­der­ing or over­see­ing mas­sacres of Rwan­dan refugees in Con­golese camps.
