Publication of the report on France's role in the Rwandan genocide


A report on France’s role in the Rwandan genocide of 1994 which left at least 800,000 dead must be published.
Historians have been studying France’s links to the massacre for two years, amid long-standing claims that the country could have done more to stop it.

French President Emmanuel Macron ordered the establishment of a 15-member commission in 2019 and gave its members access to archives to analyze France’s role in Rwanda from 1990 to 1994.

The report will be handed to Mr. Macron at 4.30 p.m. (3.30 p.m. GMT) on Friday, before being made public, according to AFP.

The commission does not include any specialist in Rwanda, which, according to the French presidency, was necessary to guarantee neutrality, AFP reports.
