Link: Rwanda genocide court stunned by air crash death of investigator

This news has left me feeling cold inside.  Alison des Forges, an expert advisor to the ICTR and expert witness at over 14 genocide trials, has perished in the Buffalo, New York air crash.  Des Forges was extremely unpopular as she relentlessly worked to get to the bottom of the genocide in Rwanda and to bring those responsible to justice.

This is a great loss to the academic and human rights community.  I am eager for the crash investigation to get underway and for the crash to be ruled an accident.

Rest in peace, Alison.
