U.S. and other foreign aid workers evacuated from northern Somalia arrived in Kenya, saying they had seen fierce rebel attacks and executions by government firing squads. The 40 foreigners, including eight Americans, flew into Nairobi after the Somali government told them to return to their posts in the field or leave the East African country. Jean Metenier, a 28-year-old French technician, said he saw 21 people executed by a government firing squad in the northern city of Hargeisa.
