The Rwandan government has accused the French military of widespread complicity in the 1994 genocide in Rwanda. The independent report released Wednesday accuses the French military of training and arming the Rwandan regime that killed 800,000 people, mostly from the Tutsi ethnic minority. The report says the French military continued to arm the genocidal regime, even after an arms embargo was imposed. The son of the French president at the time was a close friend of the Rwandan leader whose regime orchestrated the genocide.
