Rwandan woman to stand trial in N.H. on immigration charges

"A federal courtroom in New Hampshire is about to become a laboratory for analyzing the 1994 genocide in Rwanda and whether a Manchester immigrant played a role in it.  Prosecutors say 41-year-old Beatrice Munyenyezi of Rwanda lied on applications to enter the United States in 1995 and obtain citizenship in 2003. They say she ordered the rapes and murders of Tutsis in Butare during the three-month genocide of about 800,000 people.  She denied any involvement.  Jury selection in the citizenship fraud trial begins tomorrow. Most of the witnesses will travel from Rwanda and speak no English." - Associated Press, Feb. 21, 2012.
