Les rebelles et les Mayi-Mayi détournent un bateau

Les rebelles des Forces pour la défense de la démocratie (FDD) et les
guerriers congolais de la tribu Mayi-Mayi, ont détourné dimanche dernier [5
août] un bateau qui venait de la RDC transportant 300 tonnes de riz et de
sucre, a rapporté jeudi l'agence de presse du Burundi, Net Press. Ce bateau,
qui navigait le long des rives du lac Tanganyika en direction d'Uvira, est
tombé dans une embuscade tendue par les rebelles qui se trouvaient à bord
d'un autre bateau près du village de Kazimia, non loin du port de Rumonge,
au sud-ouest du Burundi. Selon des sources locales citées par Net Press,
tous les passagers du bateau sont tenus en otage par ces "forces négatives".
Après s'être emparés du bateau, les rebelles et leurs complices Mayi-Mayi se
seraient retirés dans le village de Kazimia.
