Aid workers packed to leave this northwestern town Sunday after Hutu militants executed three of their Spanish colleagues and wounded an American in the most serious rebel assault in Rwanda in more than two years. The victims of Saturday night's attack on three aid offices were medical volunteers with the Spanish branch of Doctors of the World. Three Rwandan soldiers also died. There was no report of casualties from the other two aid groups hit--Doctors Without Borders and Save the Children.

For the past two months, civil servants have gone unpaid and have lived off aid parcels from the World Food Program. The government's coffers are empty.
