More reaction to gorilla killings than human

"I still believe that if an organisation decided to wipe out the 320 mountain gorillas, there would be still more of a reaction by the international community to curtail or to stop that than there would be still today in attempting to protect thousands of human beings being slaughtered in the same country."

- Statement by Lieutenant General Romeo Dallaire, head of UN peacekeeping force, made in Rwanda at the time of the 1994 genocide
