A Dutch court sentenced a Rwandan-born Dutch citizen to six years and eight months in jail for inciting genocide.

Judges said Yvonne Besabya, 66, had stoked hatred against her ethnic Tutsi neighbors before Rwanda’s 1994 genocide in which 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus were killed.



They acquitted her of all other charges, including perpetrating genocide, murder and war crimes, Reuters repports.
