Rwanda has decided to break diplomatic ties with France amid mounting tensions over a French judicial investigation into the 1994 assassination of the African nation's president, France's Foreign Ministry said Friday. The decision to break relations takes effect Monday, a ministry statement said. "We regret this decision," the brief statement said, adding, "We are taking all necessary arrangements." Meanwhile, France's ambassador in Rwanda, Dominique Decherf, will leave the country Saturday evening and the 29 other embassy personnel in the capital, Kigali, were leaving by Monday evening, embassy security chief Serge Kulmicht told The Associated Press.
