Camp Kigali Belgian Monument

At Camp Kigali Belgian Monument, a former army base found in Kigali, ten Belgian UN peacekeepers were killed in cold blood. The tragedy which was caused by Hutu extremists was a calculated move aimed at making UN to withdraw its forces—so as to pave way for the Rwandan Genocide in April 1994.
Camp Kigali Belgian Monument site features a cluster of buildings whose walls were showered with bullets during the genocide.

These building have been preserved well so as to inspire Rwandese to prevent the re-occurrence of a similar tragedy. At the heart of the complex is a memorial with ten dark grey granite columns, laid in commemoration of each of the soldiers killed. Their identities and profiles are written at the bottom of the granite columns.
