A newly wedded couple spent their first night in an open stadium after they were arrested for breaking COVID-19 rules in Rwanda.
The couple and their guests were among 60 people who were arrested over the weekend at the Le Printemps Hotel in the Gasabo District during their wedding reception.
They were taken to an empty stadium where they had to observe social distancing to avoid the chance of spreading the virus.
