HELSINKI, Finland, Jan. 8 (UPI) -- Witnesses to the 1994 Rwanda genocide will testify in Finland at the trial of a man charged with 15 killings in the massacres, authorities say.
Four Rwandans who sought asylum in Zambia will testify for the defense in February, the newspaper Helsingin Sanomat reported Friday.
The Rwandan genocide was the mass killing of hundreds of thousands of Rwanda's Tutsis and Hutu political moderates by militias of the Hutu-dominated government.
About 800,000 ethnic Tutsis and moderate Hutus were killed in the massacre, which went on for 100 days.
Finland is one of several countries, including Canada and France, trying genocide suspects rather than extraditing them to Rwanda, where they say they could not get a fair hearing, the newspaper reported.
A Rwandan man living in Porvoo, Finland, is on trial for genocide, the newspaper reported. The trial began last summer.
