The UN is investigating claims that a general set to head its force in Sudan’s Darfur region, participated in the Rwandan genocide. UN spokesman Yves Sorokobi said human rights groups should submit evidence inking Rwandan General Karenzi Karake to any alleged crimes. The African Union approved General Karake to become the deputy commander of the AU-UN hybrid force in Darfur. A Belgium-based Rwandan exile group has accused General Karake of supervising the killings of civilians during the genocide in Rwanda and the DRC Congo. (BBC)
