The trip back home was supposed to be quick. Two trucks packed with refugees set out early one morning last week for the fields south of this remote provincial capital. Most of the 150 or so passengers were desperate to collect food left behind when they fled their homes during recent fighting between rebels and government troops. Food, almost always in short supply, has been particularly hard to come by after two U.N.

Human rights lawyers are considering legal action against a proposed government policy to turn back refugees at South Africa's borders. The lawyers accuse the government of violating the nation's Refugee Act and international conventions protecting the rights of displaced people. They also maintain that such an order would endanger the lives of people fleeing wars in other parts of Africa and would further expose South Africa to criticisms of xenophobia.

But critics--among them the Council of Better Business Bureaus and former employees who say they were in a position to judge--contend that figure is no more than 41%, perhaps lower.

From a penthouse with no roof or walls, running water or electricity, Jose Goncalves has a unique view of this wartime capital. The bone-thin former chef lives high atop Kinaxiyi Tower, a 17-story building that was abandoned, half-finished, in downtown Luanda two decades ago. About 500 refugees from Angola's raging civil war now live in the high-rise construction site, a fraction of the hundreds of thousands of people made homeless by fighting this year.
