Rwanda's 'Gacaca' genocide courts to end
The end of a painful chapter in Rwanda's history, as it formally closes a system of community courts aimed at trying suspects of the 1994 genocide. About 65 percent of those brought through the tribunals were found guilty of involvement in the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of ethnic Tutsis. Critics say the courts did not meet internationally-set standards, though those in favour of them believe it was a fast and effective way to deal with those facing trial.
