A top suspect accused of forming secret death squads and orchestrating the killings of thousands during Rwanda's 1994 genocide pleaded not guilty on Oct. 14 to war crimes charges. Idelphonse Nizeyimana, Rwanda's former deputy intelligence chief, entered his plea at the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda after being captured in Uganda earlier this month. Nizeyimana is accused of ordering the killing of children, hospital patients, priests and even an elderly and revered African queen. (AP)
