Norway?s Supreme Court ruled on Monday in Oslo, that a 42-year-old, Eugene Nkuranyabahizi should be extradited to Rwanda to stand trial over alleged involvement in the 1994 genocide in the Central African country.

Nkuranyabahizi, a former school teacher, was accused of taking part in massacres that killed about 7,500 people.

The four judges were unanimous in their ruling, which upheld two lower court decisions that there were sufficient grounds for Nkuranyabahizi?s extradition.

They said as part of the case, the courts heard testimony from witnesses compiled by Norwegian police investigators who visited Rwanda.

The Supreme Court ruling said he was implicated in coordinating attacks by Interahamwe militia that targeted Tutsis at the Akanyaru River as they tried to flee to neighbouring Burundi and an attack on people who had sought refuge in a Catholic church in Cyahinda.
