    not closely as severe as the genocide. A couple of days later into the civil war, the genocide had started. Another case of some incorrect information in the film, is that soldiers believed that the Belgians are who assassinated the late President of Rwanda; Juvénal Habyarimana. This is an extremely wrong fact that is included in the movie, because it is known in the history of Rwanda that the Hutus assassinated Habyarimana, in the year 1994. The reason of his assassination is because he was a Hutu who wanted to sign a peace treaty with the RPF (Tutsi army), to end the civil war between the two treaties. The Hutus were extremely against the peace treaty, and had called him a traitor for wanting peace with the Tutsis.
