UN extends aid to Rwanda despite HRW report on M23 atrocities
On Monday, Human Rights Watch published another report documenting atrocities committed by Rwanda's M23 militia in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo. Four days later John Kerry chaired a UN Security Council special session on Congo, and the day after that, the UN awarded $400 million in aid to Rwanda, a longstanding U.S. military partner, despite the report. And despite 13 years of similar reports by the Security Council's own group of expert investigators.
