RWANDA’S PRESIDENT PAUL KEGAME SAYS WORLD FAILED HIS COUNTRY IN 1994 GENOCIDE.

Rwanda’s president said the international community failed his country, as it marked 30 years since the 1994 genocide that killed around 800,000 people.

President Paul Kagame addressed dignitaries and world leaders who had gathered in Rwanda’s capital, Kigali, to commemorate the bloodshed.

Recall that in 1994, extremists from the Hutu ethnic group launched a 100-day killing spree, in which members of the Tutsi minority and Hutu moderates were slaughtered.

The mainly Tutsi forces who took power following the genocide were alleged to have killed thousands of Hutu people in Rwanda in retaliation.

On Sunday, Mr. Kagame and a group of dignitaries placed wreathe on mass graves at the Kigali Genocide Memorial – where more than 250,000 victims are believed to be buried.

The president also lit a remembrance flame.
