A good man in Rwanda

A good man in Rwanda

Capt Diagne, the subject of the BBC documentary A Good
Man in Rwanda
, was "the greatest hero the UN has ever had" and the medal
must be named after him, Prince Zeid told the UN Security Council.

The BBC's international development correspondent Mark Doyle says the story
of Capt Diagne is still not very well known.

But after extensive research a BBC team was able to conclude that he had
personally saved hundreds of lives during the 1994 genocide in which an
estimated 800,000 ethnic Tutsis and moderate Hutus were killed in 100 days.
