A Rwandan national who came to the United States in 2004 was sentenced in federal court in Boston Thursday to serve nearly two years in prison for lying to US authorities about her ties to the 1994 genocide in her home country.

Prudence Kantengwa, who is in her late 40s, received a 21-month sentence Thursday, court records show. She was convicted in May on charges including perjury and obstruction of justice.
