Abstract
- Deaths by the tens of thousands, unprecedented massacres: in Rwanda, more than ever, the civil war continues between Hutu and Tutsi.
- Corpses, in the water, on the road, everywhere. In one month, the civil war in Rwanda has killed more than 100,000 people, perhaps 200,000, and the fighting is still going on. A struggle to the death between two parties, but especially between two ethnic groups: the rebels of the Patriotic Front with a Tutsi majority against the regular army led by the Hutu.
- The civilian population tries to escape the massacres and tries to flee to neighboring countries. 250,000 Rwandans have already found refuge in Tanzania. This is where they arrived, an improvised camp a few kilometers from the border. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees is requesting an emergency airlift. Sanitary conditions are catastrophic and already famine threatens.
- But what the humanitarian organizations especially fear is seeing the emergence within the camp of rivalries between Hutu and Tutsi refugees.
