Rwanda

22-01-1997 News Release 97/03

The ICRC was saddened and indignant to learn of the murder in Ruhengeri on 18 January of three Spanish representatives of Médecins du monde. The ICRC is no stranger to such events, two of which in 1996 took the lives of nine of its delegates in Burundi and Chechnya. Its expatriates stationed in Gisenyi and Ruhengeri are now in Kigali, where intensive discussions are being held at the ICRC delegation and numerous outside contacts have been made in order to work out an approach that will allow the ICRC to continue working for all the victims of conflict in the region.
