Rwandan journalist killed

More disconcerting news from the GLR. Rwandan journalist Jean-Leonard Rugambage has been shot dead in Kigali. See BBC coverage here.

This killing follows the shooting of Lt. Gen. Kayumba Nyamwasa in South Africa last week, and came just one day before today’s reburial of genocide victims in Uganda.
