When President Habyarimana's jet was shot down in April 1994, Rwanda erupted into a hundred-day orgy of killing - which left up to a million dead.
Fergal Keane travelled through the country as the genocide was continuing, and his powerful analysis reveals the terrible truth behind the headlines.`A tender, angry account ...
As well as being a scathing indictment - Keane says the genocide inflicted on the Tutsis was planned well in advance by Hutu leaders - this is a graphic view of news-gathering in extremis.
It deserves to become a classic' Independent.

Superb. Present from Valentina which left me longing for more political/journalistic literature about the wounds of our world in remote places.Two questions: what were the political consequences of Burundi's president being also killed when both presidents' plane was shot down? What was the role of the Twa?
