Rwanda Report Implicates France in Genocide

PARIS -France condemned yesterday as "unacceptable" allegations by Rwanda it had played an active role in the 1994 genocide as Kigali said it hoped French officials would be indicted for war crimes.

"This report contains unacceptable accusations made against French political and military officials," Romain Nadal, a French Foreign Ministry spokesman, said in France's first official reaction.

He also cast doubt on the "objectivity" of the Rwandan commission that produced it, noting it was explicitly asked to "gather evidence showing the implication of the French state in the genocide carried out in Rwanda in 1994."
