Nairobi: Rwanda's Army said it had unearthed a network behind grenade attacks in the country, the latest of which occurred hours after incumbent Paul Kagame was declared winner of Presidential Elections this week.

"We now have in-depth information on those involved in mobilisation, sensitisation, recruitment, training, coordination, funding as well as the source of the grenades and their distribution network," Army spokesman Jill Rutaremara said in a statement on Sunday.

He, however, did not name exactly who or what group was implicated, but vowed to hunt down "these criminals who are responsible for the loss of lives of innocent people".

Seven people were wounded on Wednesday when a grenade was thrown near Kigali's main bus station after the electoral body announced Kagame had won 93 percent of the ballot criticised by some observers as devoid of real opposition.

In February and May, Kigali was rocked by grenade attacks which killed at least three people. Authorities said they had made arrests.
