A nice video from Al Jazeera about the conviction of Pauline Nyiramasuhuko, a former Rwandan government official who used her position of influence to direct killings of Tutsis in her hometown.  Perhaps most shocking was her role in orchestrating the rape of Tutsi women.

This is a nice reminders that justice, though sometimes late, does have a way of catching up to war criminals these days. This is worth keeping in mind early next week, when the ICC is expected to announce it first set of indictments in the Libya situation, which presumably will include Gaddafi.
