|Victoire Ingabire's trial will resume in Kigali, Rwanda, on Monday, where Ingabire is expected to testify in her own defense. Ingabire is on trial for terrorism and genocide ideology, which, in her case, means refusing to deny that Rwandan Hutus as well as Tutsis, died in ethnic violence before, during, and after the 1994 Rwanda Genocide. As Ingabire prepares to testify, Rwandan President Paul Kagame is on his way to France in response to the invitation of French President Nicholas Sarkozy, and, President Obama has requested immunity for Kagame, as a head of state, in the civil lawsuit, Habyarimana v. Kagame, which alleges Kagame and his officers' guilt in the Rwanda Genocide and Congo Wars, and demands damages for the widows of Rwandan President Juvenal Habyarimana and Burundian President Cyprien Ntaryamira.|
