Résumé
This intelligence analysis, prepared for Secretary Christopher’s decision as to use of the genocide label, finds “substantial, circumstantial evidence implicating senior Rwandan government and military officials in the widespread, systematic killing” of Tutsis and moderate Hutus. The RPF, “unlike government forces”, “does not appear to have committed Geneva Convention defined genocidal atrocities.” The analysts report that between “200,000 to 500,000” are dead. It also finds it credible that “Hutu elements in the military” “killed Habyarimana in order to block” the power-sharing Arusha Accords and “eliminate the Tutsi-dominated RPF and sympathetic Hutus”.
