On April 7, Rwanda marked 25 years since the horrific genocide that engulfed the country in 1994. Back then, ethnic Hutu extremists killed ethnic Tutsis and moderate Hutus. During a three-month period, Rwanda suffered a massive killing spree, resulting in the deaths of more than one million people. The carnage that befell Rwanda was one of the worst genocides of modern history.
