Rwanda hasn't assured safe passage

21 March 2013, 08:20

Nairobi - The top US state department official on Africa is indicating that Rwanda has not assured the safe passage of the internationally wanted Congolese warlord now holed up at the US Embassy in Kigali.

Assistant Secretary of State Johnnie Carson told reporters via conference call on Wednesday the US hopes Rwanda will cooperate with the request by Bosco Ntaganda to travel to the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the Netherlands to face charges.

Carson said it's important that Ntaganda's movement from the embassy to the airport "in no way be inhibited”.

Carson said the US hopes ICC officials en route to Rwanda will be allowed into the country, another indication of US concerns.

Ntaganda showed up at the US Embassy in Rwanda's capital on Monday and asked to be transferred to the ICC.
