June 23 , 2015
Karenzi Karake, the Rwandan intelligence head, has been arrested in London, media reports say.
Karake, who is wanted in Spain for war crimes, was reportedly arrested at London's Heathrow Airport. After appearing before a magistrates’ court, he was remanded in custody.
The 54-year-old has been accused of ordering several massacres when he was chief of military intelligence following the Rwanda genocide of 1994.
In 2008, a judge in Spain indicted Karake for alleged war crimes.
