KINSHASA (Reuters) - Democratic Republic of Congo's government said on Wednesday that a soldier seized by soldiers from neighbouring Rwanda earlier in the day had been shot dead by Rwandan troops.
"He emerged from where he was being guarded at the border and, in the plain sight of his (Congolese army) colleagues, was shot down by the Rwandan troops. He was executed," Congolese government spokesman Lambert Mende said.
Rwandan officials were not immediately available for comment. Rwandan Foreign Minister Louise Mushikiwabo said on Twitter that Congo's government should stop its soldiers from crossing into Rwanda.
