Rwanda has been marking the 15th anniversary of the country’s genocide when according to the government 1.2 million people were killed, the UN says 800,000 died, most of those murdered were ethnic Tutsis.
During that genocide, tens of thousands of Tutsis fled into Muslim mosques to escape from the machete-wielding Hutu mobs.
And their lives were spared because many Hutus believed Muslims were evil and were afriad to go into mosques.
Al Jazeera’s Yvonne Ndege tells the story of survivors who narrowly escaped death, and the Islamic resistance to the genocide.
