BBC: The UN is still ashamed over its failure to prevent the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, UN chief Ban Ki-moon has said. He was addressing thousands of people in the capital, Kigali, as Rwanda began a week of official mourning to mark the 20th anniversary of the genocide. Many people were overcome by emotion during the ceremony, with some suffering fits.
At least 800,000 people - mostly ethnic Tutsis and moderate Hutus - died at the hands of Hutu extremists. The killings ended ended in July 1994 when the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF), a Tutsi-led rebel movement, marched into Kigali and seized control of the country.
Rwanda's President Paul Kagame and Mr Ban lit a torch which will burn for 100 days - the length of time the genocide lasted.KOFI ANAN WAS IN CHARGE OF THE "PEACE-KEEPING" FORCE THERE AT THE TIME; HE ADMITTED SHAME IN 2012.
BILL CLINTON WAS PRESIDENT.
BOTH SHARE BLAME.
NEITHER IS BLAMED; NO ONE IS BLAMED WHY?
BECAUSE THEY ARE DARLINGS OF THE LEFT.
LIKE THE USELESS U.N. ITSELF.
IT'S TIME THE USA QUIT THE U.N. AND THREW THEM OUT OF THE USA.
