Hutu extremists 'attack' Rwandan forces

27 November 2012, 16:15

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

The army "is fighting the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda that attacked in [the villages of] Cyanzarwe and Bugeshi" around dawn, spokespersonJoseph Nzabamwita told AFP.

He was referring to an ethnic Hutu rebel group that fled Rwanda into DRC after the genocide almost two decades ago, and has been based there ever since.

Nzabamwita said the army had repulsed the rebels, who numbered around 100, and they had scattered.

"As we are talking some are fleeing back to DRC, others deep inside Rwanda," he said.
