September 03, 1998| Associated Press

DURBAN, South Africa — Congolese President Laurent Kabila, accusing Rwanda and Uganda of invading his country, asked leaders of the Nonaligned Movement to "unequivocally condemn the aggression and request their withdrawal."

U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan was scheduled to try to mediate the month-old rebel insurrection in Congo by meeting with leaders from the five countries that have been drawn into the conflict: Uganda, Rwanda, Zimbabwe, Angola and Namibia.

Zimbabwe, Angola and Namibia have sent troops to help Kabila's forces. Kabila has accused Rwanda and Uganda of supporting Congolese rebels.
