I agree with those above. Please can you switch the answers for the genocide. "The Rwandan genocide, also known as the genocide against the Tutsi, was a mass slaughter of Tutsi, Twa, and moderate Hutu in Rwanda, which took place between 7 April and 15 July 1994 during the Rwandan Civil War." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rwandan_genocide

I accidentally confused Rusesabagina for Kagame because they have the same first name, so I kept typing in as many spellings of the former as I could before I gave up and face-palmed myself.
