President Juvenal Habyarimana, First LadyAgathe, relatives and friends celebrating 50th Birthday at a Church in 1986

Late Rwandan President General Juvénal Habyarimana and Burundian President  Cyprien Ntaryamira were assassinated on the evening of 6 April 1994. Their assassination  was the catalyst for unprecedented ethnically based massacres. At the end of the massacres, millions of Rwandans, from Hutu, Tutsi and Twa ethnic groups were massacred.
