1 killed, 8 wounded in grenade attack in Rwanda


KIGALI, Rwanda (AP) — A police official in Rwanda says a grenade blast has killed one person and wounded eight.

The attack happened in a busy area of Kigali, the capital, as people returned home from work Tuesday evening.

A police spokesman, Theos Badege, called the blast an isolated incident and not the act of a terror network. Badege said one person was killed and eight were wounded.

Rwanda saw a series of grenade blasts in 2010 but the capital hasn't seen any since then.
