A Rwandan Army spokesman said Rwandan troops killed 150 Hutu rebels attempting to infiltrate Rwanda from the DRC. 24 were taken prisoner. The Rwandan report said the Hutus were part of a 2000-man strong force. (See an earlier Strategypage report for estimates on the size of the Hutu brigade.) Also on June 6, the Rwandan Army claimed it had killed 12 Hutu rebels who had killed and eaten a mountain gorilla in the Virunga National Park.
