10,000 Troops to Be Sent to Rwandan Border

From Times Wire Reports

Congo intends to send up to 10,000 soldiers toward its eastern border with Rwanda, a presidential spokesman said, after reports that Rwandan troops crossed into its territory.

A Western diplomat said thousands of Rwandan troops moved into the remote forested hills of eastern Congo -- an account supported by park rangers and local chiefs near the border.

Rwanda refused to confirm or deny the reported incursion.
