Neighbor says us man not leader in genocide

A former neighbor of a U.S. resident accused of lying about his role in Rwanda's 1994 genocide testifies he falsely confessed and falsely accused others of ordering mass killings to get out of inhumane prison conditions.
Felicien Hakizimana testified Tuesday for the defense in the federal trial of 84-year-old Lazare Kobagaya. The Topeka, Kansas resident is charged with lying to U.S. immigration authorities about his role in the African country's ethnic violence.
Kobagaya, an ethnic Hutu, has denied allegations that he ordered the killings of some Tutsis.
Hakizimana testified that Kobagaya was not a leader in the genocide. He said a group of Tutsi survivors group had a list of wealthy Hutus whom they wanted prisoners to accuse.
