JOHANNESBURG — The body of Rwanda’s former spy chief was found, possibly strangled, in a hotel in South Africa, police said today. Rwandan dissidents accused President Paul Kagame of ordering his assassination.

The suspicious death of Patrick Karegeya, a former Kagame ally who turned against him, follows a pattern of assassinations ordered by the Rwandan president, said Theogene Rudasingwa of the opposition coalition Rwandan National Congress. Kagame’s government vehemently denies it has targeted dissidents. Karegeya’s body was discovered in a room at Johannesburg’s plush Michelangelo Towers hotel on New Year’s Day.
