Rwanda Minister: ‘Eye for eye’ would have left 'very many' blind

April 3rd, 2014
03:34 PM ET

By Mick Krever, CNN

Twenty years after nearly one million Rwandans were slaughtered in just 100 days, Rwandan Justice Minister Busingye Johnston said that the choice of reconciliation over traditional justice was one of necessity.

“We had a complex situation in this country. The genocide that happened in this country – neighbors killed neighbors, friends killed friends, husbands killed wives, parents killed children.”

“If you wanted to have justice where…an eye would go for an eye you would certainly have to remove very many peoples’ eyes.”


Why 'eye for eye' couldn't work in Rwanda

The Rwandan justice minister tells Christiane Amanpour an "eye for an eye" would have left "very many" blind.

“So what we thought that was good for our society was also to heal a broken society, and try to pick up from where we were – try to build a society.”

In the 20 years since its horrific genocide, Rwanda has undergone a startling transformation unseen anywhere in the world.

Russia could invade Ukraine 12 hours after order, says NATO commander

April 2nd, 2014
02:40 PM ET

By Mick Krever, CNN

Russian troops could invade Ukraine within 12 hours of getting an order, General Philip Breedlove, NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander Europe, told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Wednesday.

“It’s my opinion that they could move within 12 hours of a go,” General Breedlove said from NATO headquarters in Brussels. “So essentially they could move right away if given the go.”


NATO military chief's warning

CNN's Christiane Amanpour speaks with General Philip Breedlove, Supreme Allied Commander Europe, NATO.

General Breedlove said that there are now 40,000 Russian troops massed on Ukraine’s eastern border.

But even that number, he said, doesn’t tell the full story.

“This is a combined-arms army, with all of the pieces necessary should there be a choice to make an incursion into Ukraine,” he said.

Forces are “supported by fixed-wing aircraft [airplanes], rotary aircraft [helicopters] – all of the logistics required in order to successfully make an incursion if they needed.”
