The Commonwealth Baton has been given a colourful reception after arriving in a Rwandan town, where it visited the King's Palace and Museum in Nyanza and local residents gave a display of traditional dancing.

The country is the 28th of 70 Commonwealth nations and territories to be visited by the Queen's Baton, which is making its way to Scotland in time for the opening ceremony of the Games in Glasgow on July 23. The palace was the former residence of King Mutara III Rudahigwa and it has been restored to its 19th century state for welcoming visitors.
