CNN's Christiane Amanpour has covered every major international and humanitarian crisis since the Gulf War. Now, in a new CNN documentary called Scream Bloody Murder, Amanpour focuses on genocide — and the people who are working to end mass killing worldwide.

Among those Amanpour interviews are an American who sought to protect the Iraqi Kurds, a Canadian general who refused to follow orders in Rwanda and a French priest who struggled for peace in Cambodia.

Amanpour is the chief international correspondent for CNN. She has won nine Emmy Awards for her news coverage.
