NAIROBI - Rwandan Justice Minister Johnston Busingye said in an interview broadcast Friday that Kigali had paid for the plane that brought the hero of the hit movie Hotel Rwanda to his home country to be arrested and tried. A critic of Rwandan President Paul Kagame since he left Rwanda to live abroad, Paul Rusesabagina, 66, appeared in Kigali under arrest in mysterious circumstances last August and is now on trial for charges including terrorism. "The government paid" to return Rusesabagina to Rwanda with the help of someone who knew him, Busingye told Al Jazeera's UpFront program, produced in the U.S. “In international criminal law, luring people into places where they can be brought to justice has happened and happened in many jurisdictions,” he added. In a statement, the justice ministry confirmed that the country "facilitated the journey" that brought the accused to Rwanda and insisted that "his rights were not violated at any point" in the legal arrest.

Separately, the families urged lawmakers in letter to demand that the US Federal Aviation Administration turn over internal emails and documents spanning the Lion Air crash and one month after the Ethiopian crash. Boeing has mostly settled civil litigation stemming from the Lion Air crash, but still faces over 100 lawsuits in Chicago federal court related to the second crash. The plaintiffs' lawyers are focusing on what Boeing knew about the causes of the first crash and why the plane continued to fly. Those victims' families also want to know what FAA management, which in November lifted a 20-month safety ban of the MAX, understood about the first crash. Last month, Boeing reached a $2.5 billion settlement with the Justice Department over the 737 MAX crashes, including a $243.6 million fine.

Parts of the Maryam Dengelat church complex are cut into the side of the cliff. A group of Eritrean soldiers opened fire on Maryam Dengelat church while hundreds of congregants were celebrating mass, eyewitnesses say. In response to CNN's findings, the spokesperson said "reports of a massacre at Maryam Dengelat are gravely concerning and demand an independent investigation." Footage of the celebrations from 2019 shows priests dressed in white ceremonial robes and crowns, carrying crosses aloft, leading hundreds of people in prayer at Maryam Dengelat church. With nowhere to run to, Abraham sheltered inside Maryam Dengelat, lying on the floor as artillery pounded the tin roof.

And Houstonians showed up to the Houston Food Bank to have their voices heard. And some were even there to protest the very legitimacy of Biden’s presidency, spouting conspiracy theories about a stolen election. Two members from FIEL Houston showed up in the afternoon in response to the pro-Trump demonstrators, prompting a shouting match between the two sides. Smits began to insult the group and hurl obscenities, as FIEL Executive Director Cesar Espinosa announced “Trump lost” over a bullhorn. The Biden administration has pushed back against such criticism, arguing that while the facilities are the same, they differ in how they’re run.

LAGOS, NIGERIA - Gunmen abducted 317 girls Friday from a boarding school in northern Nigeria, police said, the latest in a series of mass kidnappings of students in the West African nation. "We will not succumb to blackmail by bandits and criminals who target innocent school students in the expectation of huge ransom payments," he said. Friday's attack came less than two weeks after gunmen abducted 42 people, including 27 students, from the Government Science College Kagara in Niger State. In December, 344 students were abducted from the Government Science Secondary School Kankara in Katsina State. Amnesty International also condemned the "appalling attack," warning in a statement that "the girls abducted are in serious risk of being harmed."

Ethiopia has briefed India about the crisis in the Tigray Region, during the country's foreign minister's New Delhi visit last week. She said, "Always whenever there have been any kinds of difficulties, India has been there to support Africa and particularly Ethiopia." So, this relationship is historic, and the trade relationship has grown very well, and we started our diplomatic ties in 1948, just immediately after India got its independence. So, from then onwards we have got a very profound kind of relationship, especially one that focuses on capacity building. Tizita Mulugeta: Always whenever there has been any kind of difficulties India has been there, to support Africa and particularly Ethiopia.

I question Roberts’s claim that people are constantly exposed to the image of God as white. From this state of affairs, it might be - and sometimes is - claimed that the Christian God is a white person’s God. The apt response to this claim is: “Of course he is the white person’s God. And all persons.” If the Christian God is God at all, he is the God of the whole earth and everyone in it. People who turn up their noses at the God of the Bible as a white person’s God need to get out more.
