The Rwanda genocide. (video capture)

The slaughter of approximately 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus in Rwanda in 1994 was remembered in the Security Council on Wednesday.

The Rwanda genocide raised questions about the capacity of the United Nations to protect people in a conflict as the killings, mainly with machetes, clubs or knives, continued for 100 days.

The United Nations has designated April 7 each year as the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of the Rwanda Genocide.
