Zaire has begun looking for a home for deposed Ugandan dictator Idi Amin, saying his presence could harm relations with neighboring Uganda. "Zaire will do everything to find a solution to this, to say the least, embarrassing presence in an attempt to safeguard its good neighborly relations," a Foreign Ministry statement said. Amin, 61, was deported by Zaire on Thursday, but returned when Saudi Arabia, where he had lived in exile since his overthrow in 1979, refused to readmit him.

Former Ugandan dictator Idi Amin, who arrived in Africa recently on a mysterious mission and then was stranded in Zaire, will soon be returned to his exile home in Saudi Arabia, official sources said. Saudi Arabia reportedly reconsidered its refusal to allow Amin back after intervention by "a great friend" of Zairian President Mobutu Sese Seko, believed to be King Hassan II of Morocco. Amin's return would end a two-week odyssey that has embarrassed Zaire.
