Is Kigali’s Popular Spot Under Siege?

Rwandan police say 19 attackers have been killed and others are on the run after their assault on a popular tourist area killed at least 14 people over the weekend. The district is popular with tourists visiting nearby Volcanoes National Park to see gorillas. It is not yet known whether tourists were among those killed. Eighteen Rwandans were wounded. Dozens of rebel groups are active in mineral-rich eastern DRC, and the Rwandan district has been attacked repeatedly in the past. The Rwanda Development Board, which promotes tourism, says in a statement that order has been restored in the area.
