Bruno Delaye, adviser to François Mitterrand for African Affairs, intervened by telephone in Kigali in 1994 to prevent an attack on refugees at the Hotel Mille Collines. This event is not precisely dated by the journalists who report it and the accounts of the refugees are quite confused, as they suffered so many attacks. The testimony of one of them, the prosecutor Nsanzuwera, places this aborted transfer of refugees on May 3, 1994. André Guichaoua, who collected his testimony, affirms that, when asked, Bruno Delaye brought in the Head of State- Major Augustin Bizimungu. Communication with Kigali was probably done through the secure line that General Huchon had. This intervention shows that Paris could put an end to the massacres in Rwanda.
