Four Australian soldiers carry an injured Rwandan woman on a stretcher through the debris in the Kibeho refugee camp after the brutal massacre of over 2,000 civilians by the Rwandan Patriotic Army (RPA). The armed soldiers are part of the Infantry Element protecting the Australian Casualty Collecting Post (CCP) at the camp. The brutal massacre of unarmed Rwandans in the camp resulted in so many casualties the medical staff were overwhelmed and the infantry soldiers not only acted as stretcher bearers but also provided direct assistance to injured civilians. The Australians are all members of the second Australian Service Contingent (ASC2) serving in the second United Nations Assistance Mission for Rwanda (UNAMIR II).
