Rwanda. According to
Countryaah, Northwestern Rwanda was plagued all year by hutumilis' assassinations against civilian Tutsis and the
Tutsidomined army's counter-offensive. Every month there
were reports of massacres. The worst offenses include an
attack on a hotel outside the capital Kigali on July 12,
when at least 34 people were killed while watching the World
Cup finals in football. More than 100 people, mostly women
and children, were killed to the north of the capital on the
night of August 1st.
During the fall, the army carried out a major offensive
against the Hutu people. The fighting drove more than
600,000 civilians from their villages on the hills to
collection camps, where protection was better but the
livelihoods were small and the sanitary conditions poor.
The previously unknown Rwanda Liberation Army (ALIR) and
its political branch An armed people for Rwanda's liberation
(PALIR) emerged in June as a new language for the extreme
Hut nationalists. The organization has emerged from the
former Rwandan army and the militia Interahamwe, which was
behind the 1994 assassination. Congo.
At the UN War Criminal Tribunal in Arusha, Tanzania,
former Prime Minister Jean Kambanda and former Mayor
Jean-Paul Akayesu were sentenced to life imprisonment for
genocide and crimes against humanity. Kambanda had pleaded
guilty, but still did not escape the most severe punishment
of the tribunal. In April, the first executions were carried
out after the genocide. 22 people convicted in Rwandan
courts for participation in the massacres were publicly
arched, despite appeals from abroad that the sentence should
be converted to prison. The executions in a short time got
5,000 prisoners in Rwandan prisons to also admit their guilt
in the genocide in hopes of more lenient treatment.
