    this. I have already seen the entire film, absolutely fascinating and very well done. But then, I’m a bit biased. 😉

    jim, thank you for posting this essay and ek, thank you for promoting it

    Congo’s Army Accused of Striking Villages as Refugees Waited for Measles Shots

    The medical charity Doctors Without Borders has accused the Congolese Army of attacking the villages of Rwandan refugees as they waited for measles shots offered by the charity.

    Thousands of civilians gathered for shots at seven sites in a region of the former Zaire controlled by remnants of the Hutu militias who led the 1994 genocide against Tutsis in neighboring Rwanda.

    The mostly Hutu refugees had been chased out of Rwanda as a Tutsi-led force that had been in exile in Uganda for decades fought its way in to stop the genocide. Under the name Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda, the Hutus have themselves been in exile in eastern Congo ever since.
