Rwandan government accuses top French politicians of backing 1994 genocide

Wednesday, August 06, 2008

A new report by a Rwandan commission has accused former French presidents, prime Ministers and the French military of actively participating in Rwanda's 1994 genocide. The report accuses French troops of direct involvement in killings and rapes and of training the Hutu soldiers responsible for wiping out 800,000 Rwandans in 100 days.
