Ex-Rwanda Minister Found Dead in Belgium

The body of a former Rwandan government minister indicted on charges of involvement in the 1994 genocide was found floating in a Brussels canal, officials said. Former trade minister Juvenal Uwilingiyimana had been cooperating with the U.N. International Criminal Tribunal which was trying him. He faced a variety of genocide charges when he disappeared from his home on Nov. 21. His badly decomposed body was recovered from the canal last Saturday, officials said Friday. A cause of death was not announced. “This individual, although an indictee of the Tribunal, voluntarily agreed to cooperate in the search for truth and justice for the Rwanda genocide of 1994. I convey my sincere condolences to his family,” tribunal prosecutor Hassan Bubacar Jallow said. After he was indicted on June 13, Uwilingiyimana cooperated with the investigators, the tribunal said, and had a last interview three days before he disappeared. Full Story
