Storm brews over Rwanda jail plan
Plans to have prisoners convicted by a United Nations tribunal of genocide serve their sentences in Rwanda, where they committed their crimes in 1994, prompted outrage on Tuesday from defence lawyers.

The Association of Defence Lawyers working at the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) said in a statement they oppose "in the strongest possible terms negotiations between the UN and the regime of Kagame".

"Members of the Kagame regime are suspected of the same crimes over which the UN is prosecuting the ICTR detainees," the association said in a statement.
