Geneva - The head of a UN commission investigating war crimes in Rwanda said it would look into a report that victorious RPF forces have systematically killed returning refugees. The UN's investigating team said it had 'received information from the Office of the UNHCR that contains extensive evidence of systematic killings and persecutions in some cases as recent as early September of Hutu individuals by the Rwandan Patriotic Army'. It was reported last month that the mainly Tutsi RPF troops had summarily executed nearly 30,000 Hutus in Rwanda after the RPF pushed Hutu-led militias out of the country in July. Reuter
