Part Seven: Rwanda: 100 Days Engulfed in “Unimaginable Terror”
A genocide in Africa has not received the same attention that genocide in Europe or genocide in Turkey or genocide in other parts of the world. There is still this kind of basic discrimination against the African people and the African problems.
—Boutros Boutros-Ghali, UN Secretary-General during Rwanda crisis
We in the US and the world community did not do as much as we could have done to try to limit what occurred. It may seem strange to you here, but all over the world people like me were sitting in offices, day after day after day, who did not appreciate the depth and the speed with which you were being engulfed by this unimaginable terror.
—President William Clinton, 1998 apology to Rwandans
