Bags containing the remains of massacred Rwandans lie in the Nyamata Church outside of Kigali, Rwanda, in late 1996. Nyamata, a mostly Tutsi town, was the scene of some of the most notorious massacres that swept the country after April 1994, when President Juvenal Habyarimana, a Hutu, was killed when his plane was shot down. An estimated 500,000 to 1 million people perished in the systematic slaughter.
