New Genocide Memorial Opened at Murambi

A new exhibitional Genocide memorial has been opened at Murambi in Southern Province. The memorial has been opened at a site where, in April, 1994, approximately 50,000 Tutsi men, women and children were massacred by the interehamwe militia and soldiers loyal to the government responsible for the Genocide.
Established by The National Commission for the Fight against Genocide-CNLG, in association with the Aegis Trust, the memorial stands on a green hill amid the rolling countryside of the former Gikongoro Prefecture.
