Time to apologise? France grapples with its role in Rwandan genocide


But not France, whose president at the time François Mitterrand is the target of a damming new report by historians, a report commissioned by current leader Emmanuel Macron. However, its authors insist that newly declassified documents fail to prove Paris's active hand in the genocide itself. 

We ask about the findings of the Duclert commission, hear from its lead historian and ask whether France should apologise when Macron is expected to travel to Rwanda in the coming weeks. How France talks about its past can also inform how the nation sees itself as it heads into a presidential election year.
