Sweden Stops Rwanda Aid

Sweden is suspending all aid for the government of Rwanda.

Sweden’s Aid Minister Gunilla Carlsson says that the aid for 2008 will be withheld.

This comes after a United Nations analysis that says Rwanda is supporting a rebel group operating in neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo.

The report says that the Congo rebel group, led by former Rwanda soldier Laurent Nkunda, receives material and military support from Rwanda’s government, something that the government has always denied.

And rebel leader Nkunda says that his group is just trying to protect Congo’s ethnic Tutsis from the same Hutu militia that carried out the genocide in Rwanda in 1994.
