He said the attack late yesterday was in a group of villages called Bihira, 80km north-west of Bukavu. No further confirmation could immediately be made.

Some local people blamed fighters from the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR) Hutu rebel group, which includes people accused of taking part in Rwanda's 1994 genocide of 800,000 Rwandan Tutsis and moderate Hutus.

The FDLR, some of whose members were chased out of Rwanda following the genocide and took refuge in the jungles of neighbouring Congo, said in March it was ending its war against Rwanda and would transform its fight into a political struggle.


I think the hatred between the Rwandan Tutsis and moderate Hutus has not been forgotten.
