EU Freezes Some Aid to Rwanda

Surprisingly, it looks like some of the money is going to arming rebels, not humanitarian aid.


Rwanda's biggest aid donor, the European Union, has partially frozen its financial support to the east African nation, dealing what may be the heaviest blow yet to president Paul Kagame.

The move follows decisions by the United States, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden to suspend donor support over allegations that the Rwandan military is supporting a murderous rebellion in the neighbouring Democratic Republic of the Congo.
