Thousands of Rwandans protested outside the British embassy in Kigali Thursday against Britain's arrest of Rwanda's intelligence chief, hours before he was due to appear court in London over war crimes charges brought by Spain.Western nations, Rwanda says, were swayed by those behind the 1994 genocide in which 800,000 people were killed, mostly minority Tutsis as well as moderates from the Hutu majority.The case may further strain ties between Rwanda and aid-donor Britain after Kigali suspended a local BBC radio service last year following a documentary by the British broadcaster that questioned official accounts of the genocide.In 2008, a Spanish High Court judge, Fernando Andreu, accused 40 Rwandan military and political leaders, including Karake, of engaging in reprisal killings after the genocide.
