Rwanda Clashes With UN After Team Terminates Probe

The UN team's visit to Rwanda was to investigate alleged torture and rights abuses. The investigation was suspended, citing a "series of obstructions imposed by authorities" and fears that interviewees would be harassed. A Human Rights Watch report confirmed 104 cases of people who were illegally detained, and in many cases tortured or ill-treated, in military detention centers.
