 "I was never refused entry into Rwanda", she wrote to the Hirondelle Agency.

"It is true that I did not have the chance to request a visa, it is not a reason to say that they refused my entry", she added.

She was responding to an article circulated by Hirondelle Agency last week over entry refusal into Rwanda of Human Rights Watch Senior Adviser on Africa, Dr Alison Des Forges. The Hirondelle Agency mentioned that others researchers had known the same problem, including Mrs Vidal.
