3 Hutus Wanted

ARUSHA, Tanzania () -- A UN tribunal investigating the 1994 genocide of 1 million Rwandans asked Belgium on Wednesday to extradite three suspects, the first to be publicly named by the court.


Chief Prosecutor Richard Goldstone identified the three Hutu men as Alphonse Higaniro, Elie Ndayambaje and Joseph Kanyabashi, and said he hoped their trials would start in March.


Goldstone told three judges that Belgium should extradite the three.


It was the first time the tribunal had publicly named any suspect in the slaughter of a million Tutsis and Hutu moderates by Hutu troops, militiamen and mobs in 1994.
