Hello from Kigali, the capital of Rwanda.

I am here as what is known as the pool broadcast reporter – so gathering material not just for but on this trip for ITN and Sky News as well.

James Cleverly, the home secretary, is currently at a memorial to the Rwandan genocide in the 1990s, a desperately bleak chapter in this country’s recent history.

Horrific violence broke out. I am reading as we walk round the museum that according to a survey by Unicef, around 80% of Rwandan children experienced a death in the family in 1994, 70% witnessed someone being killed or injured and 90% believed they would die.
