The Rwandan government has rejected a report by a UN panel of experts that accuses Kigali of supporting Tutsi rebels in eastern Congo (DRC), describing it as inaccurate and biased. The government’s rebuttal was contained in a seven-page document that attacked the main points in a report from the UN Group of Experts, which recommended expanding a list of individuals and firms facing UN sanctions for supporting rebels in Congo. The report, which the UN Security Council is to discuss later this week, accuses Rwanda of supporting rebels loyal to renegade Congolese Tutsi Gen. Laurent Nkunda and the Congolese army of backing Rwandan Hutu rebels, some of whom are accused of participating in Rwanda’s 1994 genocide.(Reuters)
