At least 16 people were wounded in two simultaneous attacks in Kigali last night. Around 7 pm, local time, two bombs exploded. The first one blew up in the Kimironko area, near the train station and it wounded 12 people, two of them seriously, who have been taken to a nearby hospital. The second bomb exploded in Kinamba, along the road that leads to the genocide memorial, wounding four bystanders. The police is investigating the attacks and assured the people that the situation is under control, asking them to remain calm. Last February 19, in areas that are typically very busy in Kigali and at the peak traffic period, there were three similar attacks that ended up killing two people and wounding many more. Yesterday, addressing the nation, president Paul Kagame had reassured Rwandans in view of the latest attacks: “They cannot destabilize the country; we have put together a solid organization to ensure the stability and safety of citizens” said Kagame, accusing two former high ranking army officers – general Faustin Kayumba Nyamwasa and colonel Patrick Karegeya – exiled in South Africa of being responsible for the attacks.
