ROBERT SIEGEL, Host:

NPR's Jackie Northam has that story.

JACKIE NORTHAM: Stephen Rapp is the U.S. ambassador at large for war crimes. He says Munyagishari's arrest helps bring justice to the families of the victims in Rwanda.

NORTHAM: The message that there are consequences and even if they're not the ones that have the machetes themselves, but that set in motion these evils that result in the death of hundreds of thousands, that they face consequences. It's as important now as it was in 1994.

NORTHAM: Jackie Northam, NPR News, Washington.
