The Rwandan government worked to improve border control measures and prepared to create a financial investigations unit, in accordance with anti-money laundering/counterterrorist financing legislation adopted in 2008. In November, Rwanda's parliament ratified the African Union protocol on the prevention and combating of terrorism. In August, a U.S. Coast Guard team trained Rwandan security forces at Lake Kivu, bordering the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), on maritime patrolling and law enforcement techniques. During the year, Rwandan law enforcement officers participated in U.S.-sponsored training courses on criminal investigation techniques and small arms identification.
