The minister of Defense of Belgium, Andre Flao, on Thursday signed an official report on Genocides in which he affirms that the worst genocide in the last 500 years was committed in North America. The sixteen page document was published commemoratively for the ten-year anniversary of the mass-murders in Rwanda in 1994, from which there were about 800,000 victims.
In the report, it is reported that as a result of the genocide perpetrated against the indigenous population of North America, since 1492, roughly 15,000,000 people were killed. Runner up is South America with about 14,000,000 victims among indigenous peoples since 1500. As reported by the press secretary for the Belgian Ministry of Defense, the report was based on information taken from the two-tome treatise "The Encyclopedia of Genocide," published by an Israeli Historian.
