At least 45 people have been killed in two days of rioting by soldiers in Zaire's devastated capital, the worst violence in 16 months in the central African country, aid workers said. Belgium and France said they were evacuating their 4,000 nationals from Zaire after the violence, in which at least three foreigners, including France's ambassador, were killed. The State Department said that the United States had told about 800 Americans in Zaire to prepare for evacuation but that there were no plans at the moment to evacuate them.
