PRESS RELEASE N° 1776/20 May 1994

RWANDA: SAVING THE SURVIVORS

Geneva (ICRC) - The number of victims claimed by the wave of murderous violence Chat has swept Rwanda can no longer be estimated. Continued heavy fighting in Kigali and other regions has been accompanied by further massacres and prompted a mass exodus towards the centre of the country. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has located hundreds of thousands of displaced people gathered in various places, and in some cases has been able to bring them assistance. Some groups of displaced people, mainly Tutsis, came together as soon as the clashes broke out in the hope of escaping the bloodshed. They are still in mortal danger.

In resolution 918 of 16 May 1994, the United Stations Security Council decided to expand the mandate of UN troops to contribute to the security and protection of displaced persons, refugees and civilians at risk in Rwanda, in particular by setting up secure humanitarian areas. Only rapid action on this decision will ensure that people not participating in the hostilities receive effective protection.

On 19 May mortar bombs fell on the main hospital in Kigali, killing 30 wounded. This is yet another serious violation of international humanitarian law added to the countless atrocities committed in Rwanda. The ICRC calls on all the parties to the conflict to respect civilians, the wounded and staff of humanitarian organizations who are risking their lives Co bring help to this stricken country.
