The Civil Wars of Rwanda

Flag of Rwanda

This page contains links to websites dealing with Rwanda's civil wars, all of which involve the ongoing ethnic conflict between the majority Hutu and the minority Tutsi. The bloody warfare between these two groups spilled over into the neighboring Congo in 1998 and helped ignite the regional war centered in that country.
