General Kagame of Rwanda  has committed genocide, Newsweek magazine says.

According to an article published by Tom Masland in July 14, 2003 issue of  Newsweek magazine, Tutsi-led Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF), led by General Kagame,  has been conducting a campaign against hutu which has already amounted to a counter-genocide, but the world is  unwilling or unable to stop it.

The article  titled Wars Without End  Man-made catastrophies in Congo, Liberia and other war zones also cry out for action. A glimpse in the abyss    adds that the Tutsi-led government morphed into one of Africa's most repressive regimes. Assassination squads liquidated dissidents and even skinned the victims alive. Nearly after a decade, 80,000 Rwandans swelter in overcrowded and filthy jails. The RPF regime has systematically killed Hutus in Congo. The massacres have reached more than 350,000 Hutu refugees.

"For years, Rwanda mercilessly pursued Hutu refugees on the run in Congo. This campaign, still ongoing in some areas, amounted to a counter-genocide, but the World was unwilling or unable to stop it. During the overthrow of Mobutu in 1996, Rwandan troops systematically went to Congolese villages killing all the Hutus they could find. They massacred as many as 350,000 Hutu refugees, former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Herman Cohen estimates, "  the article says.

This was done, according to Newsweek Magazine, with the diplomatic backing and covert aid from the United States and Britain. When these two countries provided the support, the leaders of the countries of Rwanda, Uganda, Ethiopia and Eritrea were seen as a new generation of more democratic, honest African patriots who would rule on Africa as proxies of the West.

Now leaders from some of these countries, especially General Kagame of Rwanda, have become an embarrassment for Great Britain and the Unites States. General Kagame is about to be indicted by the International Criminal Tribunal in the Hague, French courts and the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda in Arusha.  

 The embarrassed USA and Great Britain are seeking a way out but are worried the removal of Kagame may  interfere with the peace process in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or lead to another  genocide in Rwandan and Eastern  DRC, " a Western diplomat in Kinshasa told AfroAmerica Network.
