A soldier from the Democratic Republic of Congo has been killed by police in neighbouring Rwanda after he crossed the border and began shooting, Rwandan officials have said.

The incident comes amid rising tensions between the two countries.

DR Congo accuses Rwanda of backing Congolese rebels and has halted all trade and cooperation agreements.

Rwanda has denied supporting the M23 rebel group, which this week seized control of the border town Bunagana.

the Congolese soldier, armed with an AK-47, was shot dead 25 metres into Rwanda after he opened fire on security personnel and civilians injuring two police officers, a statement from Rwanda’s army said.
