Minute's silence to mark 25th anniversary of Rwandan genocide

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION Rwandans gathered on Sunday (07 April) to begin a solemn commemoration of the lives of 800,000 Tutsi and moderate Hutus murdered during the Rwandan genocide, a three-month-killing spree that began 25 years ago.

At a special event in Kigali, a minute of silence was observed before Rwandan Foreign Minister Richard Sezibera delivered a speech saying all citizens carry the victims in their hearts and minds.

The 100 days of slaughter began on the night of April 6, 1994, after President Juvenal Habyarimana and his counterpart Cyprien Ntaryamira of Burundi - both Hutus - were killed when their plane was shot down over the Rwandan capital.

The attackers have never been identified.

As many as 10,000 people were killed daily.

Seventy percent of the minority Tutsi population was wiped out, and over 10 percent of the total Rwandan population.

Representing the European Union at Sunday's ceremony, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said he gave his heart "a thousand times over" to survivors and their families.
