Rwandans born 20 years ago take part in ceremonies for the 800,000 who were murdered then, in the 100-day genocide of 1994, France 2 reported.

Extremist Hutus massacred minority Tutsis for three months, as the world stood by. Hundreds of thousands of people fled for their lives, Swiss SF1 reported.

Some who have never got over the killing are consigned to Rwanda’s single psychiatric hospital. Twenty years later, Swiss RTS reported on those condemned to forgive.

What the Catholic Church did during the genocide was condemned by the authorities in Kigali. Many of the massacres of 1994 were in churches, where people had thought they would be safe, Swiss RSI reported.
