ICRC (strictly protect throughout) told MissionOff on 5/26 that 500 Rwandans were massacred the previous evening in the Kapgaye compound near Gitarama on the basis of lists of those to be eliminated. The ICRC compound in Kigali was hit for the second time with shelling on 5/26. In a meeting with visiting ambassador Rawson on 5/25, ICRC staff reported that selective killings continue. Ambassador Rawson briefed ICRC on high-level USG efforts to establish safe passage for endangered Rwandans to secure areas.
