Rwanda says enemies based in neighboring countries; Numbi interviewed

Two brief articles of interest:

  • John Numbi, the chief of police in the Congo, appeared in front of the military prosecutor for the first time since Floribert Chebeya's assassination yesterday. His own chief of special services, Colonel Daniel Mukalay, accused Numbi of having ordered the torture of the human rights activist.
  • Following the last grenade attack in Kigali on August 11th, which killed 6 and injured several others, the army spokesperson said that the Rwandan Defense Forces would take "radical measures" against their enemies, even if they are supported by "foreign countries." According to the spokesperson, they have proof that those who planned the attacks are well trained and have bases in neighboring countries. Neighboring countries? Uh-oh. That sounds ominous - Uganda? Congo?
