In an orchestrated terror campaign that threatens to undermine the Bosnian peace accord, arson fires raged Sunday in this Serb-held suburb of Sarajevo two days before it is to revert to government control. The fires, systematic intimidation and a general sense of lawlessness have driven many Serbs who had planned to remain in Ilidza and Grbavica, the last two Sarajevo districts switching from Serb to Muslim-Croat control, to join thousands of others in flight from the capital.

Encouraged by the peaceful welcome that Rwanda has given refugees returning from Zaire, the government of Tanzania said it would start sending home the half-million Rwandan refugees in its country.
