Rwandan President Paul Kagame has accused the international community of cowardice during a speech marking the 15th anniversary of Rwanda's genocide.
He told a rally of 20,000 people in the capital, Kigali, UN troops abandoned their posts without firing a shot.
Thousands of candles were lit at the stadium, spelling out the word 'hope'.
Mr Kagame also led commemorations at Nyanza, where more than 5,000 people were slaughtered after peacekeepers pulled out.
