Donors squeeze warlord Kagame

Germany has said it is suspending planned budget aid to Rwanda following allegations the country supported eastern Congo’s latest rebellion.

Germany’s development ministry said yesterday it has suspended €21 million (£16.5m) in contributions planned from this year to 2015.

Britain and the Netherlands have already suspended support and the US has cut military aid.

A report by UN experts last month accused Rwanda of helping create, arm and support the M23 rebel movement in violation of UN sanctions. Rwanda denies the charges.
