Rwandan President answers war crimes charges: "Not true, it's actually ridiculous"

Rebel forces and army troops fought another battle on Friday. According to reports, 200,000 people have been forced from their homes due to the violence and rapes are up 75% in Congo this year.

The U.S. government accused neighboring Rwanda of arming and supporting the rebels after a 75 page UN report laid out the evidence.

Rwanda's president, Paul Kagame, was the man who ended the genocide in Rwanda, which killed nearly 1 million people. In an exclusive interview with Rwandan president Paul Kagame, CNN's Erin Burnett asked him if the accusations are true.
