Hotel Rwanda hero declines to plead on terrorism charges


Paul Rusesabagina, portrayed as a hero in a Hollywood movie about Rwanda’s 1994 genocide, declined to plead to all 13 charges against him in court on Monday, demanding he be allowed to plead to each separate count.

Rusesabagina told the court he contributed 20 000 euros to the FLN, a militant wing of a leading opposition group and apologised for any wrongdoing caused by the movement.
