More about:

Rwandan opposition leader Victoire Ingabire was arrested today on charges of denying the 1994 genocide and "collaborating with a terrorist organisation", an official said.

"She was arrested today in Kigali. She is accused of collaborating with a terrorist organisation, dividing the population, denying and downplaying the genocide," a judicial official said.

Ingabire is the head of the United Democratic Forces, a party formed in exile but not registered.

Last month she was prevented from leaving the country because she was under police investigation.
