Transcription

The conflict was resolved with the victory of the Rwandan Patriotic Army, because it defeated the genocidal regime. So when the genocidal regime, those government troops, government officials, cabinet ministers, provincial governors and so on, all those fled to the former Zaire, which is Congo today. So, that’s how the conflict was ended. It was because the armed opposition was able to defeat militarily the former government, which was responsible for the genocide. But when the government was defeated, they created a government-in-exile in Zaire, and from there, of course, they are still able to invade the country and to kill the survivors of genocide. So even today, there are still some attempts of infiltration by the former government troops (inaudible). But right now, I understand that the new government has full control over the country.
