The first genocide suspect to be transferred by an international genocide tribunal to Rwanda has arrived in the country's capital.
Rwandan officials said the transfer shows that the international community is confident that Rwanda's court system can provide a fair trial.
The Tanzania-based International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda approved the transfer of Jean Uwinkindi, a pastor, who arrived in Rwanda Thursday evening.
Uwinkindi was arrested in Uganda in 2010 on genocide-related charges. He allegedly led groups of armed killers against Tutsi civilians during Rwanda's 1994 genocide.
Extremist Rwandan Hutus killed more than 500,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus during the genocide.
