Kagame sworn in after UN report of guilt in Congo genocide

Rwandan President Paul Kagame was sworn in to serve another seven-year term on September 6, 2010, eleven days after the explosive August 26th leak of a UN report documenting genocide committed by his army in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The official publication of the report of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHCHR), leaked to Le Monde on August 26th, has been postponed until October 1st, 2010, to give those countries accused, most notably Rwanda and Uganda, time to prepare responses. Its UNHCHR investigators mapped and collected evidence of "the most serious violations of human rights and international humanitarian law committed within the territory of the Democratic Republic of Congo between March 1993 and June 2003," including massacres of Rwandan Hutu refugees and Congolese Hutus, hunted down from Congo's far eastern to
far western borders, in what some call "the Congo Genocide."

The list we need is distraction from shaping it,

  3. @Wallace: Kagame threatened to fire on UN troops in 1994, so he should stop going on about how the world stood by. See "The world turned its back on Rwanda, in 1994?", http://coloredopinions.blogspot.com/2010/09/world-turned-its-back-on-rwanda.html

    I myself did not understand what was happening in Rwanda in 1994, but that doesn't mean I'm going to turn my back on Rwanda or Congo now.
