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