The conviction of Theoneste Bagosora and two others was handed down at a United Nations court in Tanzania after a six-year-long trial. Mr. Bagosora was found responsible for the killing of several Tutsi leaders and ten Belgian peacekeepers on April 7, 1994, and organizing army units for subsequent attacks against ethnic Tutsis.
