Background Information of Rwandan Genocide:
-Rwandan Genocide was a 1994 mass execution of Central African groups called the Hutus and Tutsis

-The mass killings were done by two Hutu extremist groups called the Interahamwe and Impuzamugambi.
-This conflict dates back centuries over land ownership after the colonization of Africa.
-In 1985, Paul Kagame started the Tutsi Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) because he was fed up with the lack of rights the Tutsis had in Rwanda.
