May 13, 1994|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Relief workers rushed food to thousands of refugees in Kigali when the rebels slowed their attacks and lifted the bombardment of the capital. Fierce exchanges of rocket, howitzer and mortar fire in recent days had blocked deliveries of food to about 15,000 refugees under U.N. protection. Two cargo planes landed at the airport with emergency supplies. "The place is so quiet we are attempting to make some deliveries," U.N. spokesman Abdul Kabia said.
