Rwanda’s High Court has sentenced a former mayor, Ladislas Ntaganzwa to life in prison for his role in the 1994 genocide, local media reports.

Ntaganzwa was arrested in the Democratic Republic of Congo five years ago and was found guilty of personally leading a series of massacres of Tutsi civilians, including an attack on a church where thousands had taken shelter.

The former mayor of southern Nyakizu was also accused of orchestrating the rape of many women in the region.
