French involvement in rwandan genocide

from Secular blasphemy
Judge Jacques Baillet, the prosecutor at the army tribunal, has opened up an investigation into the role of the French army in the 1994 Rwandan genocide. France, unlike the other western powers who chose to look the other way as an estimated 800,000 people were brutally murdered, actually had troops in Rwanda. Instead of trying to stop it, allegations are the French army conspired to aid the murderers in both committing the atrocities and escaping after the fact.

Rwandan Tutsis say that French troops first failed to stop the killings, and then established a buffer zone which enabled the killers to escape. These claims have poisoned relations between Paris and Kigali. Paul Kagame, Rwanda’s President, has accused France of failing to tell the truth about Opération Turquoise.
