Théoneste Bagosora, former Cabinet director for the Ministry of Defense during the Rwandan genocide, died on Saturday at the age of 80, The New York Times reported.

Bagosora “assumed the power of the highest authority” after the plane of the Rwandan president crashed on April 6, 1994, the NYT reported. The genocide, where ethnic Hutu extremists killed as many as 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus, began three days later.
