Rwanda capital hit by grenade blast

Attack in the centre of Kigali came as Paul Kagame gains another term as president.

    At least 20 people have been injured in a grenade attack in the centre of the Rwandan capital, Kigali.

    The explosion came as the country's electoral commission announced the results of a presidential vote on Monday.

    It gave president Paul Kagame another seven year term in office.
