Subject: There can be few greater terrors than this
The quote below is one of the most saddening, horrifying things I've ever read.  When the Hutu in Rwanda were itching for an excuse to annihilate their enemies, the death of president Habyarimana in a plane crash gave it to them:

Now Habyarimana was dead, and Mujawamariya knew instantly that the hard-line Hutu would use the crash as a pretext to begin mass killing. "This is it," she told Des Forges on the phone. For the next twenty-four hours Des Forges called her friend's home every half hour. With each conversation Des Forges could hear the gunfire grow louder as the militia drew closer. Finally the gunmen entered Mujawamariya's home. "I don't want you to hear this," Mujawamariya said softly. "Take care of my children." She hung up the phone.

Alison Des Forges was killed in the Buffalo plane crash a few days ago.
