- A French court sentences two former Rwandan mayors of the town of Kabarondo to life in prison on charges of crimes against humanity and genocide committed during the Rwandan Genocide in 1994. During the genocide, Hutu extremists massacred over 2,000 Tutsi who sought refuge in the town.
- France detains Rwandan doctor Eugene Rwamucyo, wanted by Interpol since 2006 and accused of involvement in the Rwandan Genocide.
- Agathe Habyarimana, the widow of former Rwandan President Juvnal Habyarimana, accused of helping plan the 1994 genocide, is arrested in France.
- Rwanda formally accuses senior French officials, including former Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin and late President Franois Mitterrand, of involvement in the 1994 Rwandan Genocide and calls for them to be put on trial.
- Rwanda breaks off diplomatic relations with France after a French judge, Jean-Louis Bruguire, issues warrants for the arrest of President of Rwanda Paul Kagame and nine associates for their alleged involvement in the shooting down of a plane carrying former President Juvenal Habyarimana. The incident sparked the Rwandan Genocide in 1994.
