HC Deb 11 July 1994 vol 246 c427W
Mr. Worthington

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what has been established by the United Nations investigator about the origins of the massacre in Rwanda.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

The initial report by the special rapporteur, Mr. Rene Degni-Segui, found that the massacres were planned in advance, citing as evidence a systematic campaign of incitement to racial hatred by the interim-Government-controlled media, military training and equipping of the Hutu militias from November 1993, the erection of barriers within 45 minutes of the air crash and lists of targets which correspond with those killed.

A copy of the report has been placed in the Library of the House.
