Rwandan police have arrested a senior army officer and five other suspects for plotting attacks on political leaders and key infrastructure projects. They are linked to former army chief Faustin Kayumba Nyamwasa and ex-defence minister Emmanuel Habyarimana, the police said.

The six were arrested after crossing over from their base in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, officials said.

A police statement named the leader of the group as Colonel Norbert Ndererimana.

"They were to target high populated areas, fuel storage facilities and fuel transport vehicles, national leaders as well as diplomats," it said.

Nyamwasa and Habyarimana are both leading opponents of Rwandan President Paul Kagame and live in exile.
