Meanwhile, France bears “heavy and overwhelming responsibilities” over the 1994 Rwanda genocide, a report by French historians says, but they found no evidence of French complicity.
The expert commission that presented the report to French President Emmanuel Macron say France had been “blind” to genocide preparations.
At least 800,000 people died when ethnic Hutu extremists massacred minority Tutsis and moderate Hutus.
Rwanda, which has long accused France of complicity, said it welcomed the report. END
