September 21, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

German police have arrested a former Rwandan government minister wanted on genocide charges related to the 1994 conflict in the African state, the Federal Crime Office said.

Augustin Ngirabatware is accused of having presided over the Rwandan genocide and inciting mass killings of the minority Tutsis, a spokesman for the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda confirmed. He was arrested Monday in Frankfurt.

About 500,000 people, mostly ethnic Tutsis, were massacred in 100 days of genocide led by radical Hutus.
