Rwanda ex-spy chief tried in Paris on genocide charges
A French court has begun hearing the landmark trial of a former Rwandan intelligence chief charged with complicity in the 1994 genocide.
Pascal Simbikangwa, who is paraplegic after a car crash, was arrested in 2008 while living under an alias on France's Indian Ocean island of Mayotte.
His lawyers argue that he is being made a scapegoat for the killings.
Hundreds of thousands of Rwandans perished over 100 days in 1994.
