Genocide is happening in Myanmar, Rwandan survivor says
‘I myself saw the first signs of genocide in Rwanda when I was five years old. Because I was a Tutsi, I was called a snake and a cockroach,’ says Yolande Mukagasana
London — A nurse who survived the Rwandan genocide and wrote the first civilian testimony of the massacre said Myanmar's persecution of its Rohingya Muslim minority amounts to genocide and is a “shame on the world's conscience”.
Yolande Mukagasana, 65, lost her entire family during the genocide, a three-month killing spree of 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus that began 25 years ago.
