In a trial that began 12 years ago, the verdict is guilty:
Fifteen years after finding sanctuary in Zimbabwe, deposed Ethiopian leader Colonel Mengistu Haile Mariam has been convicted by an Ethiopian court on charges of genocide. Mengistu fled Ethiopia in 1991, and Zimabwe President Robert Mugabe is not expected to provide extradition of the former Marxist ruler.
... The Mengistu regime is said brutally to have put an estimated 50,000 dissident students, political opponents and members of Ethiopia’s middle class to death.
