Rebels in Mozambique axed to death a peasant couple and five of their six children--ranging in age from 1 to 4--in a northeast Zimbabwe border village, the official Ziana news agency reported. It said the seven were killed last Thursday, the same day rebels hacked to death 16 whites, including two Americans, on two mission farms in southwest Zimbabwe's Matabeleland province. Police blamed the rightist Mozambique National Resistance, known as Renamo, for the attack. The Matabeleland attack was blamed on a rebel group led by a man named Gayigusu.
