A man who was portrayed in a film as a life-saving hero during the Rwandan genocide has been convicted of terrorism by a court in Rwanda.
Paul Rusesabagina, 67, was found guilty of backing a rebel group in a series of attacks, which killed nine civilians in 2018.
His family say he was taken to Rwanda, from exile, by force for the trial.
Rusesabagina's journey from celebrated figure to state enemy happened as his criticism of the government grew.
Initially he was hailed for his acts during the genocide 27 years ago, which prevented some people being killed.
