Arms Trade

Robert talks with Steve Boggan, a reporter for the Independent newspaper in London. They discuss the evidence uncovered by the British media that indicates at least one British company has violated the United Nations' arms export ban on sending arms to Rwanda. Documents found at the now-deserted Mugunga refugee camp in eastern Zaire indicated that the Mil-Tec Corportation supplied arms, via Albania and Israel, to the Rwandan Defence Ministry while the nation was under Hutu control.
