- In Rwanda, the ceasefire was due to take effect yesterday [May 7] at midnight. We do not know this morning if it is applied. But the images we have received, which date from before the hoped-for truce, are hardly encouraging.
- The rebels at the gates of Kigali. Yet they had announced that they would silence the guns. But it was a rain of shells that fell yesterday [May 7] on the Rwandan capital.
- The ceasefire was to come into effect at midnight. But until late last night [May 7] the fighting continued.
- This morning, nobody really believes in a lull. Especially since the shooting has not stopped for a week and the government is said to be recruiting thousands of civilians to fight back.
- Those who were able left Kigali to take refuge a little further in the town of Gahini. Children, many children were taken to hospital. No one knows their name or their age. Their parents were killed and were often found horribly mutilated among the corpses.
- In this no man's land, there are 400 peacekeepers left. They were 2,500 a month ago. No one wants to interfere and Westerners have already warned: they will not intervene.
- Alone in the world, Rwandans continue their way to nowhere.
