Rwandan rebel leader held in Paris

The International Criminal Court said a notorious Rwandan rebel leader has been arrested in Paris on charges of leading rebels accused of mass rapes and killings in Congo.

Callixte Mbarushimana, a leader of the FDLR rebel group, was arrested on a sealed warrant by French authorities, the court said.

He is charged with 11 counts of crimes against humanity and war crimes, including killings, rape, persecution based on gender and extensive destruction of property committed by the FDLR during most of 2009.
