Vianney Rusanganwa, 61, holds a portrait of his late wife, Liberatha Mukangira, who died aged 31, during a mass funeral to bury 81 coffins containing newly discovered remains of 84,437 victims of the 1994 genocide in the mass grave at the Nyanza Genocide Memorial, in a suburb of the capital. The remains were laid to rest on 4 May in a sombre ceremony in Kigali, a quarter of a century after the slaughter.
