Rockets lighted the sky here Wednesday night as Rwandan and Ugandan troops traded fire in a third day of battles during which more than 50 civilians have died. 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.
