Lille - A Rwandan doctor in a French hospital has been suspended after it was discovered he was suspected by Interpol of involvement in the 1994 genocide in his country, a trade union source said Saturday.

Eugene Rwamucyo was employed as a doctor for staff at the hospital in Maubeuge, northern France, and was suspended Thursday after a nurse did an Internet search on his name after he made a remark about her when she consulted him.

Her trade union Sud-Sante said she discovered he was being sought by Interpol and the police and prosecuting authorities were informed.

According to the Interpol website, Rwamucyo, born in 1959, is being sought by authorities in Kigali on suspicion of genocide and war crimes.

The mass killings in Rwanda of ethnic minority Tutsis and moderate Hutus by Hutu extremists left an estimated 800,000 people dead in just 100 days in 1994.
