Rwanda nun found guilty in genocide case
Kimberly Bennett at 12:00 AM ET

On November 10, 2006, a Rawandan community court convicted Theophister Mukakibib, a Catholic nun, of genocide charges for assisting in the Hutumassacre of Tutsis during the 1994 Rwandan genocide. Mukakibib was accused of helping ethnic Hutu militiamen kill Tutsis hiding in a hospital where she worked by selecting Tutsis to throw out for the militias to kill. Mukakibibi is the first nun sentenced by a Rwandan court for crimes committed during the genocide.
