KIGALI, Rwanda (AP) — Rwandan police say two grenade blasts have killed two people and wounded 22 others in Kigali, Rwanda's capital, ahead of parliamentary elections on Monday.
Police spokesman Damas Gatare said Saturday that a grenade exploded Friday night at a busy market place in the Kigali suburb of Kicukiro, killing one person and wounded 14.
Another grenade was detonated on Saturday in the same area, killing one person and wounding eight, he said.
Three people have been arrested for their alleged roles in Friday's attack, he added, giving no details about who was likely responsible for the blasts.
Since 2010 the country has been hit by grenade attacks that authorities sometimes blame on political dissidents.
