Rwanda's genocide spilled over into Congo



Rwandan Genocide was the killing of hundreds of thousands of Tutsis by two extremist Hutu militia groups, the Interahamwe and the Impuzamugambi, The Interahamwe had the backing of the Hutu-led government. A majority of the killings were perpetrated by the Interahamwe. After the genocide many of these malitia members ran in to neighboring Congo and continue to carry out there barbaric actions.

Mike Thomson from Radio 4 interviewed a young Congo mother who had been abducted, raped and forced to kill her own baby, there are a 1000 people killed in any given day in Congo today. We cannot turn our eyes away and let them butcher themselves.
