RWANDA: President Paul Kagame today welcomed a French report documenting its role in the 1994 genocide.
Mr Kagame said the new report confirmed that then French president Francois Mitterand “knew that a genocide against the Tutsis was being planned by [France’s] allies in Rwanda” but continued to support them regardless.
Rwandans were “just pawns in geopolitical games,” Mr Kagame said.
GREENLAND: The opposition Community of the People Party looked to have won early parliamentary elections with almost all votes in today.
It appeared to have taken 12 of the regional parliament’s 31 seats, ahead of the governing Forward Party’s 10. Forward chairman Erik Jensen congratulated his rivals on their win.
The Community of the People Party had stood opposing an international mining project by Greenland Minerals, which is seeking a licence to mine for what may be the world’s biggest deposit of rare earths outside China.
GERMANY: Radical theologian Hans Kung died aged 93 on Tuesday.
German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier praised him as “the role model of a scholar.” Mr Kung rose to prominence alongside Joseph Ratzinger, later Pope Benedict XVI, in the 1960s but later became an arch-critic of the latter’s doctrinal conservatism when he headed Pope John Paul II’s enforcement unit, earning Ratzinger the nickname “God’s rottweiler.”
Mr Kung attacked the Catholic Church for opposing women priests as well as its “intolerance” on birth control, and was stripped of his licence to teach theology as a result.
