Fulgence Kayishema: Rwanda genocide suspect appears in South African court

CAPE TOWN, May 26 (Reuters) – One of the Rwanda genocide’s most wanted remaining suspects, accused of ordering the death of 2,000 people hiding in a church, denied on Friday any involvement though said he was “sorry” for the 1994 killings.

On the run for two decades, Fulgence Kayishema was arrested on Wednesday under a false name on a grape farm in South Africa where, according to a prosecutor, fellow refugees gave him up.

Entering court for a first hearing with a bible and book emblazoned with “Jesus first,” the 62-year-old was asked by a journalist if he had anything to say to victims.
