Dwyer Arce at 12:00 AM ET

On April 28, 2005, the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) sentenced Mika Muhimana, a former councilor in the western Rwandan province of Kibuyea, to life imprisonment for his role in the 1994 Rwandan genocide. Judge Khalida Rashid Khan said the tribunal had found beyond any reasonable doubt that Muhimana shot Tutsi victims to death, raped several Tutsi women and also encouraged other men to commit rape in the town of Gishyita.
