"The Rwandan army chief seen as one of the principal architects of the country's 1994 genocide, in which 800,000 people died, has been jailed for 30 years by a war-crimes tribunal. Augustin Bizimungu was found to have incited the murder of Tutsis, whom he labelled 'cockroaches,' in a speech he gave in the early days of the massacres, and was ruled to have been in full control of the armed forces who subsequently carried them out."
