Refugees Continue to Return to Camps

May 02, 1997|From Times Wire Reports

Thousands more Rwandan Hutus, many with serious injuries, streamed back to camps south of Kisangani as U.N. agencies struggled to clear a backlog of refugees waiting to be airlifted home. Aid workers at Biaro camp said they could not keep up with the flood of refugees returning to the camps they fled in terror last week. The aid workers said at least a dozen people had died at Biaro overnight either from illness or injuries. Rebel leader Laurent Kabila on Sunday gave aid agencies 60 days to repatriate all refugees back to Rwanda.
