Rwandan and DR Congo soldiers clash over border

KINSHASA, DRC--A gun battle erupted Wednesday between soldiers from the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwandan forces on their volatile border, local Congolese officials said, adding to tensions between the rival nations.

The fighting began after Rwandan troops crossed the border into the restive province of North Kivu and abducted a Congolese soldier, a Lieutenant-Colonel provincial army spokesman told AFP.

“Our troops reacted forcefully and the (Rwandans) were sent back,” he said, adding that the situation was now calm but tense.
