Rwanda, Burundi expel Human Rights Watch workers in crackdown on criticism ahead of elections

Today’s news reports that “Rwanda, Burundi expel Human Rights Watch workers in crackdown on criticism ahead of elections.”

As many of you know, Jenn and I have spent some good time in Rwanda. This country that is near to our hearts, and its neighbor Burundi, both have their second elections since their genocides in the 1990s, which is raising a few concerns. See today’s Associated Press story for more. This news is not a good sign. Let’s be in prayer for those in Rwanda and Burundi as they prepare for the elections.
