Depuis un mois, les ethnies hutu et tutsi se battent pour le pouvoir et surtout pour régler de vieilles haines ancestrales. On parle aujourd'hui de 100 000 morts ou peut-être plus. 300 000 civils fuient vers le Burundi ou la Tanzanie
- In Rwanda, the clashes continue: in the capital, yesterday, mortar fire killed around 15 people and injured around 100 others.
- For a month, the Hutu and Tutsi ethnic groups have been fighting for power and above all to settle old ancestral hatreds. Today we are talking about 100,000 dead or perhaps more and 300,000 civilians are fleeing to neighboring states, Burundi or Tanzania.
- According to the surgeon Jacques Bérès of "Médecins du Monde", "we see wounds by all kinds of weapons: bullets, fragments of projectiles, machete wounds. We also see wounds which were inflicted without intention to kill but for mutilate people".
- The mandate of the UN peacekeepers does not authorize them to act. They are also packing up.
- On the military level, neither the Hutu government nor the Tutsi rebels appear for the moment in a position to prevail.
