The Tanzania-based International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda was set up by the U.N. in 1994 to try those responsible for the killings and had its first conviction in 1997.

The judicial system in Rwanda also is trying suspects. And in 2004, after a two-year test phase, Rwanda turned to community courts in a bid to speed up trials for the thousands of people accused of taking part in the government-orchestrated massacre. Under the community court system, local people are elected and trained to serve on nine-judge panels. The maximum sentence is life in prison.
