|Cholera kills Congolese refugees|
The district health officer, William Nyehangane, said two refugees died on Tuesday and another 52 were admitted in Kabahunda, Isingiro district.
They fled the country following the ongoing clashes between Laurent Nkunda's rebels and the government troops. Nyehangane was speaking to journalists on Wednesday.
Nyehangane said the district had not yet established the origin of the disease but they suspect it was brought by the new entrants from the DRC.
Nakivale was established in 1960 as a receiving camp for the Rwandan Tutsi who fled ethnic conflicts from the Hutu- dominated regime in 1959.
