Summary "Conspiracy to Murder is an account of the most appalling event of the late 20th century: the Rwandan genocide of 1994. Linda Melvern's indictment of almost all the key figures and institutions involved only serves to sharpen the horror of a tragedy that could have been avoided. Fully updated, this new edition includes an in-depth account of the genocide trials at the International Criminal Tribunal."--BOOK JACKET.
