The Catholic Church in Rwanda has apologized for its part in the country's genocide.
In 1994, Hutu extremists killed roughly 800,000 ethnic Tutsis and moderate Hutus who opposed the genocide.
A statement from the Conference of Catholic Bishops on Sunday admitted members of the church helped plan and carry out some of the attacks.
