The Netherlands has suspended $6 million in aid to Rwanda for allegedly backing a rebel uprising in the neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo.
The action is in response to a U.N. report that charges President Paul Kagame's government with supporting rebels in east Congo.
Rwanda has denied the accusations and described the Dutch government's action as being hasty and not thought out.
The United States has also withdrawn $200,000 in military aid to Rwanda, and Britain, the biggest bilateral donor to Rwanda has delayed July's disbursement of $25 million, because of the allegations outlined in the U.N. Group of Experts report.
The report's evidence of Rwandan involvement in Congo included a claim by a Congolese farmer who said he was accosted by Rwandan troops while tending his crops.
