Journey to the broken heart of Rwanda

So I’m in the technical school in the Rwandan town of Gikongoro where at least 50,000 people were massacred in 1994. My guide tells me that at the time, the local council and radio stations had told neighbouring Tutsis they would be safe from the Hutu militia if they took refuge in the school buildings. They weren’t. After waiting two weeks for water and food to run out, the militia attacked, killing everyone with grenades, machine guns, machetes and clubs. Click images above to read full story.
