Explosions shook the city center as dozens of rockets were launched, and the clatter of smaller-arms fire sent residents running for cover or kept them crouching in their homes. "We had a cease-fire tonight--for 15 minutes," said Col. Karenze Karake, operational commander of the Rwandan army.

The Rwandan rebels who killed eight foreigners on a gorilla-watching trek in Uganda were intent on scaring off tourists in a country that depends on the hard cash the adventure-lovers bring, the Clinton administration said Wednesday. But a survivor from California insisted that she will go back.
