The Rwandan genocide is included in the Rwandan Civil War. Other conflicts in the area which contributed to the civilian deaths (Congo Wars, Burundi and Ugandan Civil Wars) didn't reach the 100,000 level. The Somalian Civil War is listed as having about 40,000 deaths and Sierra Leone Civil War is listed as less than 5,000.
