Investigators were trying to determine if the explosion is connected to other blasts in the same area of Kigali earlier this year, the report said.

About 20 people were taken to the hospital following the explosion, the Times said. Witnesses said the explosion was not very large.

The blast occurred just two days after Rwandan President Paul Kagame was reelected in a landslide win.
