November 04, 1994|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Relief workers threatened to pull out of Rwanda's violent refugee camps unless security is improved and armed gangs of defeated Rwandan soldiers and militiamen are removed.

At the United Nations, a diplomat said the Security Council will consider sending peacekeepers or deploying troops later this month.
