To What Extend Was France Involved in the Genocide in Rwanda?
August 6, 2008
During the Genocide in Rwanda approximately 500,000 to 1,000,000 Tutsi and moderate Hutu were killed by Hutu militias. Gary "War Nerd" Brecher has some background information about the Genocide in his Article about the Congo War.
As the BBC reports Rwanda now accuses France of taking Part in the Genocide. The accusations go so far that they even claim French soldiers actively participated
“French forces directly assassinated Tutsis and Hutus accused of hiding Tutsis… French forces committed several rapes on Tutsi survivors,” said a statement from the justice ministry cited by AFP news agency.
