Rwanda Genocide Fugitive May be Hiding in Zimbabwe

HARARE, Zimbabwe — Zimbabwe police offer $5 million reward for information on a Rwandan genocide fugitive they say may be hiding in Zimbabwe.

The state-run Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation said Wednesday police are offering the reward for news on the location of Protais Mpiranya, a former Rwandan Presidential Guard commander wanted by a United Nations tribunal for Rwanda on allegations of participating in the mass killings of 60,000 civilians during that country's 1994 genocide.

Prosecutors of the U.N. tribunal asked Zimbabwe's help under international laws to arrest Mpiranya but immigration officials and police previously denied that he was in the country. Now police say Mpiranya may be in Zimbabwe.

State radio said Mpiranya could be using the aliases Theophase Mahuku or James Kakule.
