Definition of Genocide: The deliberate killing of a large group of people specifically those of a certain ethnic group or nation.
- Began on April 6, 1994 when Hutus began slaughtering the Tutsis in the Rwanda. The slaughter lasted 100 days and left 800,000 dead.
- Started because of the Assassination of President, Juvenal Habyarimana.
- The name Tutsi described those that owned the most cattle and the rest of the people were called Hutu.
- There were no exceptions to who was killed whether the person was a man, woman, or child. Since bullets were expensive the weapons used were mostly machetes, clubs, and knives.
- The genocide ended after the RPF, (Rwanda Patriotic Front), took control of the country which was in July of 1994.
