Zairian rebel leader Laurent Kabila secretly flew to South Africa and met with U.S. officials trying to kick-start the Zaire peace process. Kabila met in Pretoria with South African and U.S. officials who have been trying to arrange a meeting between the rebels and Zairian President Mobutu Sese Seko's government, according to a U.S. government official in Washington. In Zaire, meanwhile, government soldiers looted the eastern town of Kindu ahead of an expected advance by Kabila's fighters toward Kisangani, Zaire's third-largest city.
