Abstract
- In the Rwandan refugee camps, there is a significant drop in mortality, even though there are still a thousand deaths per day.
- In Kigali, the British and Americans disembark with equipment. The airlift is slowly being put in place. Every day, the airport tarmac receives several jumbo jets supposed to deliver humanitarian aid, or for now what should be used for humanitarian aid.
- Almost a month after the capture of Kigali, the supply of the population remains disorganized. Neither transport, nor water, nor electricity: the city survives as best it can. The RPF is still managing its military and political victory. Only the central market finds a little animation and the rare products arrive from Burundi. The massive exodus of the population has paralyzed all production. Some residents denounce the international mobilization: too late, too little.
- According to the UN, only 70,000 refugees from the camps have returned to their villages. It must be said that most of them are Hutu. They therefore fear reprisals from the former rebels of the Rwandan Patriotic Front.
- Zairian soldiers looted part of the food aid that arrived at Goma airport this afternoon. We have no details on the quantity and nature of the stolen goods.
