As the world officially remembers the genocidal murder of 800,000 Rwandans in 1994, United Nations leaders warn that ethnic cleansing and mass atrocities continue to blight humanity and call for sharper action to prevent such wholesale violations.

On the 20th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide, the international community must continue its efforts to improve its response to mass atrocities.
