Major Persecutions in Recent Years
"In the course of a hundred days in 1994 the Hutu government of Rwanda and its
extremist allies very nearly succeeded in exterminating the country's
Tutsi minority. Using firearms, machetes, and a variety of garden
implements, Hutu militiamen, soldiers, and ordinary citizens murdered some
800,000 Tutsi and politically moderate Hutu. It was the fastest, most
efficient killing spree of the twentieth century."
