Rwanda genocide suspect Felicien Kabuga arrested in France

Rwandan genocide suspect Felicien Kabuga was arrested on Saturday near Paris after 25 years on the run, accused of playing a leading role in one of the worst massacres of the 20th century.
The 84-year-old, who is Rwanda’s most-wanted man and had a $5m bounty on his head, was living under a false identity in a flat in Asnieres-Sur-Seine, according to the French justice ministry.

  • Kayiranga Foustin says:

    Genocide against tutsis in Rwanda in 1994,not Rwandan genocide dear @al Jazeera English

    • TheSushiraw says:

      GENOCIDE AGAINST TUTSI never took place, moron…
      It’s just RWANDAN GENOCIDE in which both belligerents committed massive killings, *I studied and worked on this case, for a period of time.*

    • Kayiranga Foustin says:

      @TheSushiraw that is your view,

  • Baby drumphf says:

    This is as if Elvis, Michael Jackson, Hitler or Jeffrey Epstein were still alive & well & living right under our noses in Jerusalem or the Vatican or somewhere. These monsters need to be prosecuted to the full letter of the law.

  • pat mourassa says:

    when will those who supplied WEAPONS TO CANNIBALS so they can MURDER MILLIONS IN SYRIA,LIBYA,IRAK,be arrested?

    • TheSushiraw says:

      They are the ones that sparked the CIVIL WAR, that they are accusing this MAN!!!🤣
      PRESIDENT CLINTON ordered the downing of the former president plane, that terror act sparked everything.

  • ioan pena says:

    Somebody is 5 Million $ richer !!!

  • Kong Lee says:

    Like the French Government don’t know he’s in the country…

    • TheSushiraw says:

      He lived in GERMANY and SWITZERLAND as well…
      *he is MADLY WEALTHY, probably he have been paying PEOPLE…*

  • Mixtec Jaguar says:

    Why don’t they skin him alive? He should go out slow ..

  • Brian Mwaura says:

    I still wonder what was he to gain?

    • Sunny H. says:

      Just an evil.person reason just evil.

    • Brian Mwaura says:

      @Sunny H. yess but that’s not the whole story,in a way he was to benefit from all of it

    • TheSushiraw says:

      Its just POLITICS… go and ask Mr CLINTON the same question, him and CIA sparked everything up,

  • Baby drumphf says:

    I thought Felicia was a womans name while Kabugaloo does sound African!

  • DAVIS MATE says:

    Why now? probably his well of money has dried out, with all intelligence and technical know how they poses, how did he manage to slip and live in europe capitals?

  • Afg Tunes says:

    Kabuga is a Zionist, U.S, Great Britain, NATO close ally to colonize Africa. His job was to continue extreme violence. His WESTERN white masters protected him for a long time

  • Geo MS says:

    Why only after 25 years? Who has protected him so far, and why has his protection been revoked? What does France receive in return?

    • Wise Cub says:

      America offered $5 million reward for his arrest, those keeping him had a difficult choice to make.

  • Sectionc saisai says:

    RIP to all the victims

  • ԋαɳʂ ωolʇ says:

    France still supporting arming and financing warlords all over the world

  • Joseph Abraha says:

    This is such disturbing to remind back those who lost their life. But the Government of Kagame and his people need to ask to France ,how this evil man had run away from justice for too far long? Those colonial powers are still committed Crimes by hiding those responsible and avoiding them to bring to justing. 26 years running from justice this is dispicable. Such series questions have to be asked to France. Colonial powers are just nothing but only
    Distruction and division among african continent. Africans think twice befor its too late.
    Rest in peace those died.

  • Jaseem Muha says:

    Can they arrest white christian terrists like george bush and tony blair

  • Joshua Grover says:

    It’s very strange and suspicious that the suspected “nuts and bolts” man behind the Rwandan Genocide Kabuga was arrested in a former ally country of Rwanda, probably the closest ally of the Rwanda government at the time of the Rwandan genocide and literally in the lions den in Paris, what the French going to say next? “We never knew he was in France”? Very hard to believe for a guy who’s been on the run for 26 years he must have had help no doubt from powerful individuals especially in Europe, won’t like to be Kabuga’s connections at this minute, the amount of damage he could do to his connections!

    lecture avisée “Le Génocide Voilé” de Tidiane N’Diaye

  • Adi Murenzi says:

    26years and France knew he was there. So what made France betray this criminal. Money? A interesting offer they couldn’t refuse? Or…?

  • duhur labiste says:

    Why does that matter to France

  • limenyande olivier says:

    Last time I checked you all didn’t like the court in the Hague 😂😂😂

  • Gordon Welford says:

    President Macron stated: “I hardly knew him, I never met him.”


    Thank you to the USA 🇺🇸 and France 🇫🇷 for arresting “ Kabuga “ the most wanted genocide mastermind and perpetrator who is responsible of the genocide of 1 .000.000 Tutsi civilians in 1994


    Arrest the French government too. They supplied the weapons!

  • Wise Cub says:

    Apart from Neo-colonialism the West has nothing to offer to Africans, not even our own fugitives, if they could share intelligence and apprehend Osama Bin Laden, Kabuga is a piece of cake, like Billions of Dollars stolen by our currupt African leaders, they know where he is all these years.
    It’s like they milk a cow until it runs out of milk, then they send it to the slaughter’s lab that’s it. And the process continues.

  • George Njoroge says:

    France Government knew and played part in Rwanda Genocide… Also gave a save heaven to the fugitive after the genocide…. France should be held accountable

  • Muzungu Me says:

    🛑 🛑 He ran out of money 💰 to fund the French economy 🏦 , then they just hand him over now.

    A person who bought Machetes to kill off Tutsis from the Earth 🌍!!
