With air raids halted and ground fighting evidently stalemated, U.S. diplomats have decided to take another stab at persuading Eritrea and Ethiopia to end their heated border war and embrace a U.S.-Rwandan plan to settle differences by arbitration. A group of U.S. diplomats was en route to this Ethiopian capital on Wednesday "to see if they can pry things off dead center," said a diplomatic source. They might later travel to Asmara, the Eritrean capital, one official said.

Eritrean and Ethiopian troops pummeled each other with shell and rocket fire along their disputed border Tuesday, while diplomats and hundreds of frightened foreigners fled the Eritrean capital. Advancing up a steep mountain along their shared border, the Eritrean army pushed between five and eight miles into Ethiopian territory. Dozens of Eritrean troops were wounded in fierce fighting. It was not immediately clear how many casualties the Ethiopian side suffered.
