Grenade attack at Genocide memorial kills policeman
KIGALI - A police constable was killed on Thursday evening when an unknown person threw a grenade where he stood guard at the Kigali Genocide Memorial Centre main entrance. Ignace Munyantamati died instantly at the city memorial site while his colleague, Jacques Ntimugura, was rushed to King Faisal Hospital after sustaining injuries. They were both standing on guard at the Gisozi-based museum’s main gate near the road.
Hundreds of people thronged Kigali Memorial Centre yesterday to pay tribute to Genocide victims even as an attacker hurled a grenade at the Genocide museum, killing a policeman and injuring another the previous day. (Photo / J. Mbanda)
