Théoneste Bagosora, Rwandan army officer convicted of genocide, dies at age 80

Des Forges has campaigned for years to hold Mr. Bagosora and his cronies to account, and his foundational efforts have been widely recognized for playing a key role in seeing them tried and sentenced. She died in 2009 aboard a commercial flight that crashed in Clarence Center, NY, near her home in Buffalo, killing all passengers and crew and one person on the ground. (At that time, she knew that Mr. Bagosora had been convicted and, at the time, imprisoned for life.)
