The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda sentenced three former senior military officials to life in prison on charges stemming from the 1994 genocide, the New York Times reported on December 18. 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.
