Rwanda troops enter Burundi to chase rebels
Bujumbura - Burundi said on Saturday Rwandan troops had entered its territory briefly to hunt down Congo-based Rwandan Hutu rebels infiltrating through northern Burundi to attack Rwanda's southern provinces.

"They (Rwandan troops) returned to Rwanda. We demanded that they do not do that again, because this can destabilise good relations between our two countries", Burundian army chief of staff Brigadier General Germain Niyoyankana told reporters.

He said the Rwandans had entered on Thursday and left on Friday after Burundi protested.
