HRW controversy: Rwanda rejects accusations of extrajudicial killings

In July, the NGO Human Rights Watch published a report claiming that the Rwandan security services were responsible for the extrajudicial killings of 37 people - for crimes as minor as stealing cattle, motorbikes, or food. In response, Rwanda's National Commission for Human Rights rubbished the allegations, claiming that some of the allegedly deceased were still alive, while others had died of natural causes. FRANCE 24's Thais Brouck conducted his own investigation.
