Rwanda: November 4, 2004


 Eight of ten Burundi Tutsi political parties have relented and accepted the new constitution, which gave it enough support to bring the constitution into force today. The Tutsis felt that there were not enough safeguards for Tutsi rights. However, the Tutsis, like everyone else, is tired of years of civil war and wants to "give peace a chance." At this point, the only real opposition to a new government, and elections, are the Hutu FNL rebels, who still have several hundred armed men operating south of the capital.
