    The two women took the stand, one after the other, and recounted the rapes and beatings they said they endured during the Rwandan genocide.

    One woman, a member of the country’s Tutsi minority that was targeted for extermination by Hutu extremists, said a medical student at a hospital where she had sought refuge twice handed her to a group of men, who took her to a field to be sexually assaulted.

    The second woman, also a Tutsi, testified that the same medical student first raped her cousin, then came for her. When he was finished, he handed her over to Hutu extremists and told them to kill her, she said. She was six months pregnant at the time.

    How do you go back and even find people that were credible witnesses during that time?
