Green Raquel Stevens 1011885 Rwanda is a small country located in central Africa. It is bordered by Uganda, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Tanzania. One of the most terrible ethnic conflicts in our days was the Rwanda genocide, back in 1990 in the African country of Rwanda two tribes faught each other within the same territory, the rest of the world strangely ignored the masacre thousands of people were killed.
