Commemorations have begun in Rwanda to mark the 25th anniversary of the genocide that killed about a tenth of the population.

The country will mourn for 100 days, the time it took in 1994 for 800,000 Rwandans to be massacred.

Most were minority Tutsis, killed by ethnic Hutu extremists.

President Paul Kagame, who led the rebel force that ended the genocide, lit a remembrance flame at the memorial in the capital, Kigali.

  1. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic
    to be actually something that I think I would never understand.

    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post,
    I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  2. I’ve been exploring for a little for any high-quality articles or blog posts in this sort of house .
    Exploring in Yahoo I ultimately stumbled upon this site.
    Studying this info So i am glad to convey that I’ve a very good uncanny feeling I discovered exactly
    what I needed. I so much surely will make certain to don?t
    fail to remember this web site and give it a look regularly.
