Continue reading below

A federal judge has declared a mistrial in the case of a woman accused of lying to obtain US citizenship by denying her role in the 1994 Rwanda genocide. Jurors had failed to reach a verdict. Beatrice Munyenyezi, 41, became a US citizen in 2003 and moved to Manchester. She faced deportation to Rwanda upon conviction. Authorities say Munyenyezi was an extremist Hutu who killed and enabled the rapes of untold Tutsi victims. Prosecution witnesses testified they saw her direct rapes and killings, but her relatives testified they never saw her do so. (AP)
