Simple wooden crosses stand atop a mass grave for some of the victims of the Rwandan genocide a decade ago. The government estimates that 1 million people died in the mass violence. After Hutu President Juvenal Habyarimana was killed in April 1994, authorities exhorted the population to kill all Tutsis. Tutsi sympathizers were also slaughtered.
