Norway is now checking the background of up to 20 Rwandan immigrants suspected of genocide in their African homeland
"We are working on suspicion directed against certain persons from Rwanda now living in Norway. We have received a list from Rwanda's public prosecutor's office and on this list are between 10-20 names," chief public prosecutor Siri Frigaard told newspaper Bergens Tidende.
At least 800,000 people are estimated to have lost their lives in a wave of genocide in Rwanda during just three months in 1994.
Rwandan authorities have discussed the presence of genocide suspects in Norway for several years.
