More die in new Rwanda massacres

The Rwandan authorities say at least forty civilians were killed in attacks on two villages on Monday night.

A military spokesman Colonel Balthazar Ndengeyinka blamed Hutu rebels for the killings.

He said fourteen people had died in Nyabikenke, north of Gitarama, and at least twenty-six in nearby Nyakabanda.

The spokesman said the victims were Tutsis as well as Hutus who had been accused of collaborating with the Tutsi-led government.
