Hotel Rwanda hero convicted of terror charges

Date: Sep 20, 2021

A court in Rwanda has found the former hotel manager who's credited with saving hundreds of people during the 1994 genocide guilty of terror-related crimes.

Paul Rusesabagina, whose actions inspired the Hollywood movie Hotel Rwanda, boycotted the trial and is not present in the court.

He's accused of being the mastermind and financier of a rebel group that carried out attacks in Rwanda in 2018 killing at least six people.

The Judge is expected to give a lengthy prison sentence to the strong critic of Rwanda's President, Paul Kagame.

Rusesabagina's family has described the trial as a sham.
