(A new word entered our lexicon of shame: "Ethnic Cleansing")

Seems there's no such thing as an Average April day in history, unless its one draped in conflict and upheaval. April 22, 1994 - a ten minute capsule via The CBS World News Roundup. The stepped up violence in Bosnia, former President Nixon on his deathbed, ousters of Prime Ministers in Japan amid corruption charges and the full horror of genocide in Rwanda only starting to be realized. Just a normal day in April.

(Some people still don't know what happened, or even where Rwanda is)
