Rwanda Attack Sends Aid Workers Packing

Aid workers packed to leave this northwestern town Sunday after Hutu militants executed three of their Spanish colleagues and wounded an American in the most serious rebel assault in Rwanda in more than two years.

The victims of Saturday night’s attack on three aid offices were medical volunteers with the Spanish branch of Doctors of the World. Three Rwandan soldiers also were killed.

There was no report of casualties at the other two aid groups hit - Doctors Without Borders and Save the Children.

With Hutu militants resuming their attacks and beginning to target foreigners, what had appeared to be the peaceful return of more than a million Hutus from 2-1/2 years in exile has turned violent.

Nitin Madhav, 28, of Pittsburgh, was shot in the leg during the attack. Doctors amputated his leg above the knee and flew Madhav to Nairobi, Kenya, for further treatment.
