 Hotel Rwanda Hero Convicted On Terror Charges

A man who was portrayed in a film as a life-saving hero during the Rwandan genocide has been sentenced to 25 years for terrorism by a court in Rwanda.

Paul Rusesabagina, 67, was found guilty of backing a rebel group behind deadly attacks in 2018 and 2019.

His family has called the trial a sham, saying he was taken to Rwanda, from exile, by force.

Rusesabagina’s journey from celebrated figure to state enemy happened as his criticism of the government grew.

Initially he was hailed for his acts during the genocide 27 years ago.
