- The Rwandan government forces did not hesitate to bomb the stadium in Kigali where there were thousands of refugees.
- Executed with machetes: these bodies are those of civilians mostly belonging to the Tutsi minority. We are in the vicinity of Kigali and the Hutu check the identity of all passers-by at the roadblocks. Beware of those who do not belong to the right ethnicity.
- The majority of foreigners were evacuated last week and the crimes are now taking place without witnesses. The 420 Belgian blue helmets left Rwanda today. The remaining 1,500 UN soldiers are expected to leave in a few days.
- The Rwandan army is fighting against the rebels of the Patriotic Front for control of the capital Kigali. The Rwandan government, or what's left of it, has taken refuge in a school on the border with Burundi. Jean Kambanda, "Rwandan Prime Minister": "I think that the government here represents the people. And it is the people, today, who control the peace".
- For their part, the Tutsi fled to Burundi but the clashes with the Hutu also reached the neighboring country whereas until then it had been spared from the massacres. The Red Cross estimates that 400,000 people have been displaced since the fighting began. And on the road from Kigali to Bujumbura, the capital of Burundi, it is not uncommon to come across refugees from both ethnic groups, united in the same distress and fleeing the massacres.
