This collection of documents concerns the mass murder of an estimated 800,000 Tutsi and moderate Hutus in Rwanda between April and July 1994 after an airplane carrying Rwandan President Juvénal Habyarimana and Burundian President Cyprien Ntaryamira was shot down as it prepared to land in Kigali, Rwanda on April 6. The genocide did not end until the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF), composed mostly of Tutsi, defeated the Hutu dominated militias and government forces of Rwanda in July 1994. The collection includes material covering the reaction of and the actions by the international community, particularly the Belgians and French.
