- Rwanda in the civil war. France decides to evacuate its nationals and sends paratroopers to protect them.
- Rwanda to fire and blood. Rwanda is a very small country in the heart of Africa and even if it is very small, it is home to two different ethnic groups. For 20 years these two ethnic groups had lived in a precarious calm. Now it's over. France has decided to evacuate its nationals from Rwanda. To protect them, she sent a contingent of 150 paratroopers.
- Belgium, which had already sent 400 yesterday, is sending a second contingent today. It must be said that last night the armed clashes began in the capital of Rwanda, Kigali.
- Events are accelerating in Rwanda where five hours of fighting last night in the streets of Kigali between the Rwandan army and rebels led France to take the decision to proceed with the evacuation of its nationals. Bonn, for its part, gave the green light for the possible evacuation of the Germans, while South Koreans, present in Rwanda, have also decided to leave the country.
- In Brussels, a spokesperson for the Belgian Foreign Ministry said that Belgium had absolutely no immediate intention of evacuating its nationals. 1,630 Belgians are present in the land of a thousand hills, where 600 French and 400 Germans also live.
- After the night's fighting, calm returned this morning to the Rwandan capital. Airlines such as Air France or Kenya Airways have however decided to cancel the stopover in Kigali, considered a combat zone. However, 150 French paratroopers who arrived last night [October 4] in Rwanda are present at the airport.
