Habyarimana was the president of Rwanda until 1994 when his plane was shot down.

His death is what set off the Rwandan genocide. Tuesday for the first time, President Kagame addressed a direct question about the accusation during a press conference.

Anchor Marco Werman talks to The World's Mary Kay Magistad who attended the conference.
