Rwandan soldiers play special role in CAR

Having experienced genocide, Rwandan soldiers are able to get through to people in CAR in ways other soldiers cannot.

    Among the thousands of international troops in Central African Republic are over 800 Rwandan peacekeepers.
     
    For them, the religious violence is a reminder of their own country's genocide nearly 20 years ago.
     
    But it has given them a unique tool to help them get through to people in CAR in ways other soldiers cannot.

    Al Jazeera's Tania Page reports from the capital Bangui, where she went on patrol with Rwandan forces.
