Rwandan army rescue 74 civilians abducted by attackers 

KIGALI Rwanda (Xinhua) -- The Rwanda Defence Forces (RDF) rescued 74 civilians who were abducted during Saturday’s attack in Nyamagabe district in southern Rwanda, it said on Tuesday.

The mission started immediately after the attack and there are no more Rwandans missing, defence and military spokesperson Innocent Munyengango told Xinhua in a phone interview.

Unidentified attackers torched three passenger vehicles Saturday evening in Nyamagabe, near the border with Burundi, killing two and injuring eight, the army had said late Saturday.

The death toll has risen to four after two died from injuries, the Rwandan army said Monday in a statement, adding that they pursued the assailants and killed three while the rest escaped into Burundi.

The army also said the area is now secure.
