RWANDA : $1,000 Offered for Each American Killed
A Hutu rebel group has offered a $1,000 bounty for the head of every American killed in Rwanda, and $1,500 for that of U.S. Ambassador Robert Gribbin, senior Western diplomats said. U.S. Embassy officials in the capital, Kigali, confirmed the threat and said U.S. citizens in the country had been warned to take extreme care. The Western diplomats said the bounty was announced in a statement issued Thursday by a rebel group called People in Arms for the Liberation of Rwanda. The group was unheard of until earlier this month when it issued a statement saying it was fighting to topple Rwanda’s Tutsi-led government.
