ABSTRACT
Reports that the killing that has transformed the tiny nation of Rwanda into Central Africa's slaughterhouse is the worst of the post-Cold-War era. As many as 250,000 people have died in a campaign of genocide and retribution. Little hope that an international peacekeeping force can stop a country that seems intent on killing itself; Mounting evidence that the bloodshed is the result of a systematic plan to destroy the country's nascent democracy.
