OriginEdit

The Rwandan genocide, known officially as the genocide against the Tutsi, was a genocidal mass slaughter of Tutsi in Rwanda by members of the Hutu majority government. Over the one hundred day period of time an estimated 500,000 – 1,000,000 Rwandan citizens were killed. That's as much as 70% of the Tutsi and 20% of Rwanda's total population. In several smaller towns and villages the rivers ran red with the blood of so many people slaughtered.

For the most part soldiers used handheld machetes to kill any Tutsi living in the area, although some army units used rifles. Hutu gangs searched out victims hiding in churches and school buildings, massacring them, no place was sacred. When gangs couldn't reach the outside villages the government sponsored radio incited ordinary citizens to kill their neighbors if they were Tutsi, those who refused to kill were in turn murdered on the spot.

“Either you took part in the massacres or you were massacred yourself” - Gerard Prunier, author of the 1999 book The Rwanda Crisis: History of a Genocide.
