Beatrice Munyenyezi's Retrial May Be As Complex As the First

Manchester resident Beatrice Munyenyezi goes on trial on charges she lied about her involvement in the Rwandan genocide to come to the United States and obtain US citizenship.

If that sounds familiar, that's because Munyenyezi was on trial earlier this year on the same charges, but the jury couldn't agree on a verdict and the judge declared a mistrial.

For more on the case we turn to Tom Haines. He teaches journalism at the University of New Hampshire and recently wrote a feature on the Munyenyezi case for the Boston Globe.
