Rwanda marks 25th anniversary of the genocide

Apr 07, 2019 22:02 IST

Marking 25 years of the genocide that killed about a tenth of the country's population, the Rwandan president and other dignitaries paid their respects to the victims on Sunday. Leaders laid wreaths at the Kigali Genocide Memorial and lit a flame of remembrance, that will burn for 100 days in memory of the massacre. In 1994, nearly 800,000 minority community members known as Tutsis were killed by the majority Hutu population.
