A jailed Rwandan opposition leader was in court on Monday to appeal against her conviction in a case linked to the 1994 genocide after a trial last year that Amnesty International called "flawed".

Victoire Ingabire, head of the unregistered FDU-Inkingi party, was imprisoned for eight years in October for conspiring to harm the country through armed force and terror and for seeking to minimize the genocide in which more than 800,000 people died.

Ingabire returned to Rwanda in January 2010 from exile in the Netherlands to contest a presidential election that year but was barred from standing after being accused of the crimes linked to genocide denial.
