Rwanda/Terror: U.S. authorities warn Maj Robert Higiro of an assassination attempt on his life by Paul Kagame’s hit squads, on foreign land.

“The U.S. warning to Mr. Higiro about the threat to his life in Belgium is part of a larger pattern of threats against Mr. Kagame’s critics in the same country.

He said Belgian police and state security officers had warned him that his life was in danger.
