Rwanda says Hutu extremists attack it from DR Congo

Tuesday November 27 2012

Hutu extremists based in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo on Tuesday crossed into Rwanda and attacked its forces along the border, Rwandan army spokesman Joseph Nzabamwita said.

The Rwandan army "is fighting the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda that attacked in (the villages of) Cyanzarwe and Bugeshi" around dawn, he told AFP, referring to an ethnic Hutu rebel group that fled Rwanda into DR Congo after the genocide almost two decades ago and has been based there ever since.
