Genocide is the systematic destruction of all or a significant part of a racial, ethnic, religious or national group, most often accomplished by mass murder.
Before Day 1Edit
Victor Drazen (A.K.A. "The Butcher of Belgrade") was a Serbian military leader serving Slobodan Milošević who carried out several ethnic cleansing campaigns and purges throughout Kosovo and committed various war crimes. Evidence suggested that Hamat Gorunian, a financier of anti-Serbian organizations which also committed mass murder, was himself assassinated by Mishko Suba, a terrorist with ties to Drazen.

Before Day 7Edit
Prior to Day 7, the African rebel faction in Sangala known as the People's Freedom Army committed mass murders against the populace and forced large numbers of children to take arms or clear minefields (24: Redemption). The rebel leadership (most notably General Benjamin Juma, and "The Butcher of Sangala" Colonel Iké Dubaku) was paid by Jonas Hodges (of the American private military contractor Starkwood) to poison whole villages with a weaponized prion variant ("Day 7: 11:00pm-12:00am").
