Two earthquakes have struck Rwanda and neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo, killing at least 28 people and wounding hundreds. The quakes hit the Rwandan-Congolese border region today as many people were in churches attending Sunday services. Rwandan officials say at least 23 people were killed and more than 400 were injured in the southwest of the country as churches and homes collapsed. Authorities in the DRC reported at least five deaths in the Bukavu region of South Kivu province. The United States Geological Survey says the first quake had a magnitude of 6. It says the second quake struck about 2.5 hours later with a magnitude of 5. The two quakes hit the western Rift Valley region.

Fighting around Chad's presidential palace has intensified as rebels try to overthrow long-time President Idriss Deby. VOA's Nico Colombant reports from our regional bureau in Dakar.

Clashes between rebels and government troops resumed early Sunday morning in N'Djamena on several fronts including at the presidential palace where President Deby is believed to be holed up. Residents said they could hear heavy weapons and anti-tank fire, as well as exchanges of automatic gunfire. An official from the former colonial power France says French troops present in the capital have offered to help the president escape the rebel onslaught, but that he has refused. French troops have been trying to organize mass evacuations of foreigners, but these were disrupted on Sunday. Many foreigners have regrouped in luxury hotels close to the scene of the fighting. Overnight, when the clashes stopped for many hours, hundreds of French and other foreign nationals were evacuated on French military planes to nearby Gabon. The rebel offensive began last week from bases in Sudan in a lightning desert march to the center of the capital, marking the biggest threat to Mr. Deby's rule since he himself took power in a coup in 1990. Nico Colombant, VOA News, Dakar.

Rival ethnic groups are carrying out attacks and burning homes in western Kenya despite an agreement by the government and its main opposition to try to end the unrest. Police say fighting has killed at least 14 in the Rift Valley region since Friday. Residents say much of the violence has been carried out by gangs armed with machetes and poisoned arrows. A mob burned a church to the ground Saturday in the town of Eldoret. But authorities say there were no casualties. Violence has continued despite former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan's announcement Friday that President Mwai Kibaki's government and the opposition had agreed on a framework for talks to end the crisis. Annan said the sides would discuss stopping the violence, delivering humanitarian aid, and ending the political impasse.

Citizens of Serbia are voting today in a presidential election regarded as the most important since Slobodan Milosevic was ousted as Serbian leader in 2000. VOA's Barry Wood in Belgrade reports.

This is a run-off election between pro-western incumbent Boris Tadic and nationalist Tomislav Nikolic, the two biggest vote winners in the first round two weeks ago. Marko Blagojevic of Belgrade's Center for Free Elections says the turnout is on track to exceed the 61% total from the first round. Voting is said to be brisk among minority Serbs in Kosovo, the southern ethnic Albanian majority province that is expected to soon declare its independence. The main issue in the campaign has been Serbia's future orientation. Mr. Nikolic, whose party was aligned with Slobodan Milosevic in the 1990s, favors closer ties to Russia, Serbia's main ally in opposing independence for Kosovo. Mr. Tadic similarly opposes Kosovo independence, but favors closer links with the West and rapid moves towards membership in the European Union. Barry Wood, VOA News, Belgrade.

The Sri Lankan military says a female suicide bomber blew herself up in the main railway station in the capital today, killing at least 11 people and wounding about 100 others. Witnesses say the woman detonated the bomb on a platform crowded with commuters. Hospital workers said some children were among the victims.

Afghan police briefly surrounded the Kabul home of a former warlord today after he and about 50 armed men beat up a political rival. Kabul Police officials say a group led by General Abdul Rashid Dostum attacked the house of Akbar Bai, a former ally, wounding him and one of his bodyguards.

Hamas officials say Egyptian forces have closed the breach in the border between the Gaza Strip and Egypt nearly two weeks after militants blew up a section of the border wall. Officials said today that troops are allowing Gazans and Egyptians to cross the border to return to their homes.

Two earthquakes have struck Rwanda and neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo, killing at least 28 people and wounding hundreds. The quakes hit the Rwandan-Congolese border region today as many people were in churches attending Sunday services. Rwandan officials say at least 23 people were killed and more than 400 were injured in the southwest of the country as churches and homes collapsed. Authorities in the DRC reported at least five deaths in the Bukavu region of South Kivu province. The United States Geological Survey says the first quake had a magnitude of 6. It says the second quake struck about 2.5 hours later with a magnitude of 5. The two quakes hit the western Rift Valley region.

Fighting around Chad's presidential palace has intensified as rebels try to overthrow long-time President Idriss Deby. VOA's Nico Colombant reports from our regional bureau in Dakar.

Clashes between rebels and government troops resumed early Sunday morning in N'Djamena on several fronts including at the presidential palace where President Deby is believed to be holed up. Residents said they could hear heavy weapons and anti-tank fire, as well as exchanges of automatic gunfire. An official from the former colonial power France says French troops present in the capital have offered to help the president escape the rebel onslaught, but that he has refused. French troops have been trying to organize mass evacuations of foreigners, but these were disrupted on Sunday. Many foreigners have regrouped in luxury hotels close to the scene of the fighting. Overnight, when the clashes stopped for many hours, hundreds of French and other foreign nationals were evacuated on French military planes to nearby Gabon. The rebel offensive began last week from bases in Sudan in a lightning desert march to the center of the capital, marking the biggest threat to Mr. Deby's rule since he himself took power in a coup in 1990. Nico Colombant, VOA News, Dakar.

Rival ethnic groups are carrying out attacks and burning homes in western Kenya despite an agreement by the government and its main opposition to try to end the unrest. Police say fighting has killed at least 14 in the Rift Valley region since Friday. Residents say much of the violence has been carried out by gangs armed with machetes and poisoned arrows. A mob burned the church to the ground Saturday in the town of Eldoret. But authorities say there were no casualties. Violence has continued despite former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan's announcement Friday that President Mwai Kibaki's government and the opposition had agreed on a framework for talks to end the crisis. Annan said the sides would discuss stopping the violence, delivering humanitarian aid, and ending the political impasse.

Citizens of Serbia are voting today in a presidential election regarded as the most important since Slobodan Milosevic was ousted as Serbian leader in 2000. VOA's Barry Wood in Belgrade reports.

This is a run-off election between pro-western incumbent Boris Tadic and nationalist Tomislav Nikolic, the two biggest vote winners in the first round two weeks ago. Marko Blagojevic of Belgrade's center for free elections says the turnout is on track to exceed the 61% total from the first round. Voting is said to be brisk among minority Serbs in Kosovo, the southern ethnic Albanian majority province that is expected to soon declare its independence. The main issue in the campaign has been Serbia's future orientation. Mr. Nikolic, whose party was aligned with Slobodan Milosevic in the 1990s, favors closer ties to Russia, Serbia's main ally in opposing independence for Kosovo. Mr. Tadic similarly opposes Kosovo independence, but favors closer links with the West and rapid moves towards membership in the European Union. Barry Wood, VOA News, Belgrade.

The Sri Lankan military says a female suicide bomber blew herself up in the main railway station in the capital today, killing at least 11 people and wounding about 100 others. Witnesses say the woman detonated the bomb on a platform crowed with commuters. Hospital workers said some children were among the victims.

Afghan police briefly surround the Kabul home of a former warlord today after he and about 50 armed men beat up a political rival. Kabul Police officials say a group led by General Abdul Rashid Dostum attacked the house of Akbar Bai, a former ally, wounding him and one of his bodyguards.

Hamas officials say Egyptian forces have closed the breach in the border between the Gaza Strip and Egypt nearly two weeks after militants blew up a section of the border wall. Officials said today that troops are allowing Gazans and Egyptians to cross the border to return to their homes.
