The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) has opened two new information centres in the south of Rwanda. They join ten other similar sites set up throughout Rwanda to provide genocide-related information to promote peace and security in the region. Beginning in April 1994 in Rwanda, more than 800,000 ethnic Tutsis and Hutu moderates were massacred, mostly by machete, during a period of less than 100 days. Click here to read more about the ICTR.
