Two Roman Catholic priests from Rwanda who are accused of genocide and crimes against humanity could, if found guilty, face the death penalty.

The two priests are accused of massacring 60 Tutsis at the Nyundo Minor Seminary in Gisenyi, in the northwest part of the country, according to the All Africa News Agency (AANA), based in Nairobi, Kenya. The two priests - Jean-Francois-Emmanuel Kayiranga and Emmanuel Nkuriye - were also accused of killing 2,000 people who had taken refuge in the Nyange church in Kibuye, in southwestern Rwanda, AANA reported.
