Gripping the world for its sheer brutal nature, the Rwandan Genocide of 1994 was a well planned out ethnic cleansing that had been in the works for at least two years by the volatile Hutu tribesmen. The warnings were first brought to the world’s attention when the Belgian ambassador to Rwanda warned that the Hutus were preparing for an ethnic cleansing. Another Belgian, Professor Filip Reyntjens, also appeared before the Belgian senate and warned that the Hutus were operating death squads. He even mentioned one of their leaders as Rwandan Army Colonel Theoneste Bagosora, who would later command the genocide.
