What do you think most people think when they look at those pics on the front page of Umusingi? Like the breasts, it is a distorted view of a country. Like the decapitated human being, it shows the high level of atrocity in a country that knew genocide not too long ago.

Not sure really. The breasts thing is slightly unusual for a somewhat conservative country, but not that "shocking". The decapitated head picture has been seen around for a while. TBH - I think it's more the veractiy of the content of the newspaper that worries me and others.
