UN's Ban Ki-moon tries to calm Rwanda president over leaked report
The UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has just been on what has been described as a damage limitation trip to Rwanda, to meet President Paul Kagame.
President Kagame is said to be furious at a draft UN report which accuses Rwandan soldiers of murdering civilians in the Democratic Republic of Congo in the mid-1990s.
The draft report, which was leaked to the press, says if the crimes are proved in a competent court they could constitute genocide.
President Kagame has said if it is published he will pull his country's 3,500 troops out of the UN's peacekeeping mission in Darfur, Sudan.
