Review of 'Shooting Dogs', director Michael Caton-Jones
In April 1994, at the Ecole Technique Officielle - a secondary school cum UN army base in Kigali, Rwanda - Belgian UN troops, school children, NGO workers and over 2,500 Rwandans, mainly Tutsis, took refuge against genocide. A baying Hutu militia danced menacingly with machetes outside the perimeter fence. After just five days the UN troops left the school, taking the whites with them and abandoning the Rwandans to their fate. Within hours almost all of the Rwandans were dead.
