Abstract
- Rwanda delivered to chaos: while the civil war continues to claim thousands of lives, Westerners are abandoning the country.
- The 420 Belgian Blue Helmets, those whose departure was imminent, would be trapped at the capital's airport, surrounded by the Rwandan army.
- Fragile glimmer of hope all the same: the Patriotic Front would be ready, under the aegis of the United Nations, to discuss a possible ceasefire with the army provided that the massacres cease throughout the territory.
