Four senior officers of the Rwandan army were convicted by the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) on 17 May for crimes committed during the genocide in 1994.

The report on serious violations of international humanitarian law in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) between 1993 and 2003, compiled by the UN High Commission on Human Rights, was published on October 1st. A leak of the report in the French daily Le Monde on August 27th led to great controversy. Rwanda, accused of the most serious crimes, called the report “malicious, offensive and ridiculous”, and threatened to withdraw its peacekeeping force from Sudan.
