Rwandan police shot and slaughtered two individuals who challenged lockdown orders forced by the administration to check the spread of the coronavirus.
The two men in their twenties “endeavored to tussle with officials,” Rwanda National Police representative John Bosco Kabera said by telephone Wednesday, Bloomberg reports.
Rwanda started a fourteen day lockdown on March 22, limiting travel among towns and urban communities and requesting that individuals stay inside. Its measures are among the most stringent in Africa.
The East African country has 40 affirmed Covid-19 cases.
