Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Hotel Rwanda hero Paul Rusesabagina found guilty of terror charges” – below is their description.

The man whose experiences inspired the film Hotel Rwanda has been sentenced to 25 years in jail, after he was found guilty of terror offences.

Paul Rusesabagina, who saved more than a thousand ethnic Tutsi people during the 1994 genocide, had called the trial a “sham”, claiming he had been arrested in retaliation for his outspoken criticism of the country’s long-time president Paul Kagame.

The Rwandan authorities have denied his allegations of human rights abuses.
