- The disarray of the UN soldiers is also the image of a Belgian Blue Helmet returning from Rwanda. A gesture of rage or disgust, the symbolic image of this Blue Helmet lacerating his beret [we see a Belgian soldier stabbing his blue UN beret with a dagger saying: "It's because of the berets that we feel remorse!"]. It is in Rwanda, when leaving the country. The last Belgian soldiers will indeed leave tomorrow [April 19] from Kigali.
- The International Committee of the Red Cross, however, paints a nightmarish picture of the situation. Shelling and shooting still in the capital. And then everywhere in the country tens of thousands of deaths, hundreds of thousands of people forced to exodus. The massacres continue without any of the belligerents making a concession towards peace or even towards a ceasefire.
