Britain halts aid to Rwanda over 'role' in DRC crisis By BBC | Friday, November 30 2012 at 13:51
Britain has suspended aid to Rwanda amid concerns about the Kigali’s role in the conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Ministers said the UK would not now release a payment worth £21m.
An aid payment of £16m was paid to Rwanda in September despite question marks over its alleged support for the M23 militia in DR Congo.
The government also said it would give a further £18m for immediate humanitarian needs in the DR Congo.
