Uganda, June 14 -- Ugandan officials have said Rwandan security on Saturday took into custody a Ugandan soldier they found patrolling the border.

Kigali confirmed they had seized the unnamed soldier attached to the 35 battalion in Kisoro District for allegedly straying into Rwandan territory.

The Kisoro Resident District Commissioner, Mr Peter Mugisha, who doubles as the head of the district security committee, said: "One UPDF soldier was on Saturday evening captured by Rwandan army officials as he patrolled the Uganda-Rwanda border with his colleagues.

''The captured soldier remained behind to ease himself and by the time his colleagues turned back to check on him, they found that he was already abducted."
