A Finnish court sentenced a former Rwandan pastor to life in prison on Friday for participating in genocide in his native country in 1994.

Francois Bazaramba, 59, who had been detained since April 2007, has insisted he is innocent.

"Of course he was sad, he was disappointed," Bazaramba's lawyer Ville Hoikkala told Reuters, adding the defence would appeal the verdict.
