Two former senior Rwandan officials pleaded not guilty to genocide and crimes against humanity in their first appearances before the troubled UN tribunal into 1994's mass slaughter. Anatole Nsengiyumva, a colonel in the former Rwandan army, and Ferdinand Nahimana, a former director of extremist Radio Milles Collines, appeared separately before the tribunal in north Tanzania.

They were the most senior former officials to plead but will be followed today by former colonel Theoneste Bagosora, widely considered the most wanted genocide suspect detained. Reuters - Arusha, Tanzania
