Rwanda Arrests Second Journalist From the Umurabyo Newspaper

A second Rwandan journalist working for the Umurabyo newspaper has been arrested under laws aimed at reducing tensions between the Central African country’s Tutsi and Hutu tribes.

Saidati Mukakibibi, a reporter, was charged with “divisionism and for likening President Paul Kagame to Hitler,” police spokesman Eric Kayiranga said today in a phone interview from the capital, Kigali. She worked for the newspaper without being registered as a journalist, the spokesman said.
