Burundi Peace Talks

Host Renee Montagne talks with Allison Des Forges, a consultant to Human Rights Watch Africa, about the on-going Burundi peace talks. President Clinton, as a personal favor to Nelson Mandela, will address the peace talks later today as part of his trip to Africa. Mandela was hoping to have an agreement from both the Tutsi-controlled government and the Hutu rebels before Clinton's visit, but that agreement has proved elusive.
