Rwanda has filed a case at the World Court accusing France of violating international law by seeking the prosecutions of Rwandan President Paul Kagame and associates. A French judge issued nine arrest warrants in November over the 1994 shooting down of a plane in which former Rwandan president Juvenal Habyarimana died. The incident led to the massacre of some 800,000 minority Tutsis and politically moderate Hutus by extremist Hutus. (Reuters)
