STATEMENT BY THE PRESS SECRETARY
We are deeply saddened and concerned at the dimensions of the tragedy that has apparently occurred at the Kibeho camp in southwest Rwanda. The facts are as yet unclear as to how this incident took place and where the blame for it lies.
Our embassy is working closely with the United Nations mission in Rwanda. Assistant Secretary of State for Africa George Moose is on his way to Kigali where he is expected to meet with Rwandan government officials. We join others in calling for an end to the killing.
