Rwandans Kidnap 13 Tourists, 3 From U.S.

From Times Wire Reports

Rwandan rebels killed three people and kidnapped 13 foreign tourists--including three Americans--from a campground in southwestern Uganda, officials said. The camp, which the Congo-based rebels attacked late Sunday, is the main starting point for seeing the 320 rare mountain gorillas that remain along the border. Unconfirmed reports from private tour operators said one tourist and two Ugandans were killed. In Washington, State Department spokesman James Foley said, “We are in the process of confirming the identify of those missing U.S. citizens so that we can notify immediately their families.”
