A good man in Rwanda

It is 20 years since the genocide in Rwanda in which 800,000 people died, most of them Tutsis.

BBC correspondent Mark Doyle reported on the killings in 1994.

To mark the anniversary he has retraced the story of Captain Mbaye Diagne, a United Nations peacekeeper in Rwanda, who saved many lives through his bravery, for BBC Newsnight.
