Women balanced heavy bundles on their heads and men pushed bicycles piled high with possessions Monday on the road from Tanzania to Rwanda, which was crowded with Hutu refugees as far as the eye could see. By evening, more than 100,000 people, some carrying ducks and chickens, others herding goats and cows, had crossed into their home country after 2 1/2 years in Tanzanian refugee camps. Some took shortcuts through fields of bright yellow sunflowers.

Hundreds of thousands of Rwandan refugees were crossing home Sunday after a 2 1/2-year exile in Tanzania, their will to remain broken by a few well-aimed blows from Tanzanian soldiers. "There are over 300,000 people crossing, and more are on the way," said an official of the Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees at this border post. Refugees said that Tanzanian soldiers entered the sprawling Benaco camp, 10 miles from the frontier, and ordered everyone to leave.
