Rwanda Hails France’s Plan to Dedicate Day to Observe Genocide

The French government has declared that April 7 will be a date on which, every year, they commemorate the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi. A commemoration ceremony will be organised in the capital, Paris, every year on the same date the Genocide was set in motion by an extremist regime that was backed by the then French government.
