FNL preparing "massive attacks" for April 2006, in collaboration with Rwandan FDLR, claims leaked intelligence
From Angola Press
Speaking after his return from Kigali, Nkurunziza spoke of the idea of s "common defence" system aimed at breaking the alleged alliance between the Burundian rebel National Liberation Front (FNL) and the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR). These are the two Hutu armed groups still fighting the government in Bujumbura and Kigali.
According to intelligence reports leaked in Bujumbura early this month, the two rebel groups were preparing massive attacks against their countries of origin in April 2006.
Leaked intelligence reports should obviously be treated with caution - but if this report is true then it's another worrying sign that the FNL has no intention of ending its violence any time soon.
