Titanic Express massacre, December 28th 2000

On December 28th 2000, 21 people were killed after the FNL ambushed a civilian bus, the ill-named "Titanic Express", close to the Burundian capital Bujumbura. The dead included Charlotte Wilson, a British aid worker, her fiancé Richard Ndereyimana, a Burundian-Canadian, Arthur Kabunda, a pregnant woman, a university professor, several students from the University of Butare, and a number of children. Hutu passengers were allowed to go free. One was told to tell the government "We're going to kill them all and there's nothing you can do".

FNL documents reveal the meticulous detail with which the killers recorded how many people they killed, what they stole from the passengers, even the number of bullets used in the attack.
