BBC News published this video item, entitled “Félicien Kabuga: Rwanda genocide suspect goes on trial at The Hague – BBC News” – below is their description.

One of the last alleged masterminds of the 1994 Rwandan genocide has gone on trial at a UN tribunal in The Hague.

Prosecutors say Félicien Kabuga aided and abetted hit squads in the slaughter of ethnic Tutsis, and used a radio station to incite hatred against them.

Mr Kabuga’s lawyers have filed a not guilty plea for him but he has refused to attend the opening of the trial.

Some 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus were killed in the genocide.
