BBC NEWS | Africa | Rwandans sentenced over genocide: "Two Rwandan businessmen convicted of war crimes and murder during the 1994 genocide have been given long prison sentences by a Belgian court.

Half-brothers Etienne Nzabonimana and Samuel Ndashyikirwa were jailed for 12 and ten years respectively.

They were found guilty of helping Hutu militia massacre some 50,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus.

They were tried under a Belgian law allowing trials for war crimes, even when committed by foreigners elsewhere.

Dozens of Rwandans testified against the two men who were arrested in Belgium, where they were living, in 2002."
