Four unidentified gunmen from the Burundian military were killed Saturday after they attacked a defensive position of the Rwandan military in southern Rwanda, the Rwandan military said.

The gunmen attacked a defensive position from the Rwanda Defense Force (RDF) at the Ruheru sector at about 12:20 a.m. (2220 GMT) and intended to harm people living in a model village built by a development program protected by the attached RDF position and one kilometer away from the border with Burundi, the RDF said in a statement.

The attackers retreated to Burundi through the Burundian troops’ position and left behind military equipment including weapons and communication radios, it said.

Three Rwandan soldiers sustained minor injuries during the attack, the statement said.
