Abstract
- In Rwanda, things are not getting better: rebels and government forces clash violently around the capital Kigali, to the misfortune of civilians.
- Hutu or Tutsi, what does the ethnicity of these children matter today. Wounded, mutilated by a war that would have claimed hundreds of thousands of victims. But no real assessments, no figures because no one today is able to establish the macabre accounts of these massacres.
- In this Benaco refugee camp in Tanzania, a man carries his child to the ground. The graves are dug very close to where 200,000 people survive.
- After a short lull, fighting has resumed in recent days. This morning the rebels of the Patriotic Front of Rwanda increased their pressure on Kigali airport, the object of all desires. The UN would like to make it a neutral zone to bring in a reinforcement of 2,500 men.
- But nothing suggests for the moment of a cessation of fighting: the killings, the carnage continue. So the emergency is reduced to offering a makeshift shelter to a whole population which, on the roads, is trying to escape the horror.
