Tous les Français, à l'exception d'un tout petit nombre de religieux notamment, ont été évacués. Il y a 35 ans que des massacres se produisent au Rwanda et au Burundi entre les différentes ethnies
L'ambassade de France finit de regrouper les derniers Français et comme de coutume en cas de crise grave, on détruit les documents diplomatiques. Personne n'ose imaginer ce soir ce qui va se passer après le départ des derniers soldats étrangers.
- All the French, with the exception of a very small number of religious in particular, were evacuated.
- Most often it is civilians who have massacred their own neighbors with a machete, only guilty of not being of the same ethnic group.
- The French Embassy is finishing regrouping the last French and as usual in the event of a serious crisis, diplomatic documents are destroyed.
- The evacuation of foreigners is proceeding without too much difficulty and it seems that it corresponds to the wishes of the parties in conflict.
- Rwanda and its neighbor Burundi are unfortunately used to these deadly clashes. Massacres have been taking place there between different ethnic groups for 35 years.
- However, a political agreement hardly negotiated last August had to be applied. But the process was delayed and to the impatience of the Tutsis, the anger of the Hutu extremists hostile to the agreement and to democratic opening was answered.
- The most violent are the members of the presidential guard, accused of having indiscriminately killed Tutsi and Hutu liberals. In this murderous context, the new government is not recognized by the Patriotic Front, which has resumed the offensive in the country. No one dares imagine what will happen tonight after the last foreign soldiers leave.
The massacre scene aired from 0:24 to 0:28 was filmed by Nick Hughes. On the other hand, the one where two black men and two French soldiers are seen burning the archives of the French embassy begins at 0:39 and ends at 0:49.
