A Norwegian court convicted a Rwandan man living in Norway for participating in the 1994 genocide in his home country and sentenced him to 21 years in prison.
The Oslo court found Sadi Bugingo (47), guilty of complicity in the premeditated killings of at least 2,000 people belonging mainly to the Tutsi ethnic group. It singled out three prolonged attacks in his home town of Kibungo, eastern Rwanda, during April 1994.
Bugingo has denied all charges and says he will appeal.
The court said that the former businessman participated in the massacres and organised them by transporting armed killers and victims to the sites of the killings.
"Several witnesses have described how the accused was present in the massacres," Judge Jonas Petter Madsoe said.
