The action followed SA's expulsion of three Rwandan diplomats Pretoria linked to a raid by gunmen this week on the Johannesburg home of an exiled Rwandan general.

"We have expelled six S[outh] African diplomats in reciprocity & concern at SA harbouring of dissidents responsible for terrorist attacks in Rwanda," Rwandan Foreign Minister Louise Mushikiwabo said in a comment on her Twitter account.
