Théoneste Bagosora, Rwandan army officer convicted of genocide, dies at 80

Des Forges campaigned for years to hold Mr. Bagosora and his cohorts to account, and her foundational efforts were widely credited with playing a key role in seeing them tried and convicted. She died in 2009 aboard a commercial flight that crashed in Clarence Center, N.Y., near her home in Buffalo, killing all passengers and crew and one person on the ground. (By then, she knew Mr. Bagosora had been convicted and, at the time, jailed for life.)
