Rwanda honours those killed in genocide that began 25 years ago

Rwandan President Paul Kagame and a number of visiting dignitaries attended a memorial ceremony to commemorate the lives of 800,000 Tutsi and moderate Hutus murdered during the Rwandan genocide, a three-month-killing spree that began 25 years ago. Kagame was joined by his wife and son, as well as several dignitaries including European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel. Following a wreath-laying ceremony, Kagame was among those who lit a commemorative torch at the Gisozi memorial site, on the northern outskirts of Kigali, where more than 250,000 of the dead are buried.
