Accused arrive for verdict in 'Hotel Rwanda' hero's terrorism trial


Twenty accused arrive for the verdict of their terrorism trial in Rwanda. Paul Rusesabagina, the 21st and most famous accused, has been boycotting the trial since March and did not come to court. Rwandan prosecutors have sought a life sentence for Rusesabagina, the 67-year-old former hotelier credited with saving hundreds of lives during the 1994 genocide, and whose actions inspired the Hollywood film "Hotel Rwanda". His supporters say the charges are politically motivated. IMAGES
