Rwanda has spent the past two decades recovering from a genocide. In 1994, over the course of roughly 100 days, a minority group known as the Tutsis, along with others, were systematically executed. As many as 1 million, or 15% of the entire Rwandan population were slaughtered, and another 2 million were displaced.
The rebel force, which ended the genocide and took over the government, was led by the country's current President, Paul Kagame who over the past twenty-two years has worked to bring the country back from its darkest period.
