Germany jails Rwandan for Congo war crimes

A German court jailed the former political leader of a Rwandan rebel group on Monday for abetting war crimes committed in neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) from his European exile. After a marathon trial, the judge in the southwestern city of Stuttgart sentenced Ignace Murwanashyaka, who became president of the ethnic Hutu FDLR group in 2001, to 13 years. Straton Musoni, his one-time deputy, also got eight years on a charge of being a ringleader of a terrorist organisation.
