24 Years Later - Rwandans Recount Chilling Genocide Memories

As the country marks the 24th commemoration of the genocide of the Tutsis by Hutus - a massacre which left more than one million people dead, Rwandans are narrating their unforgettable ordeals. A 64-year old widow who lost all her six children, her husband and two brothers when soldiers invaded her home, has told the story of how she survived because her blood-soaked body made the blood thirsty militia believe that she was dead.
