A bad day for Rwasa's Rwandan counterparts - Four genocide suspects arrested in the UK
Four men accused of taking part in the Rwanda genocide in 1994 have been arrested in the UK. Scotland Yard said the arrests followed a request from the Rwandan government for their extradition.
Vincent Bajinya was arrested in north London, Charles Munyaneza in Bedford, Celestin Ugirashebuja in Essex and Emmanuel Nteziryayo in Manchester.
All four - accused of killing members of the Tutsi ethnic group - will appear before magistrates in London on Friday.
Mr Bajinya is also known as Dr Vincent Brown.
A provisional extradition warrant accuses them of killing members of the Tutsi ethnic group "with the intent to destroy in whole or in part, that group".
Scotland Yard said the extradition warrants had been issued by City of Westminster magistrates under Section 73 of the Extradition Act 2003.
The warrants also allege that between 1 January 1994 and 12 December 1994, the men conspired to kill Tutsis, and aided and abetted the killings.
Tharcisse Karugarama, Rwanda's justice minister, said in November that they had formally requested the British government to hand over four men suspected of planning the massacre.
