The Rwandan Genocide is commemorated in Rwanda and at the United Nations as "the Genocide against the Tutsi." However, it was preceded by the assassination of three Hutu Presidents and by the massacre of hundreds of thousands of Hutu civilians in Burundi. There is also ample evidence that hundreds of thousands of Hutus, as well as Tutsis, died in the Rwandan massacres.

  Rwandan President Juvenal Habyarimana and Burundian President Cyprien Ntaryamira were both assassinated when Habyarimana's plane was shot out of the sky over Kigali, Rwanda on April 6, 1994. Both were members of their countries' Hutu majorities. No one has ever been prosecuted for the crime.
