Volcanic activity near Rwandan refugee camps raised concern among aid officials Friday that hundreds of thousands who fled civil war may be forced to flee again. The Nyirangongo volcano, a few miles from the Kibumba camp, has been giving off a red glow, indicating the presence of a lava lake in the crater. An eruption of that volcano killed 1,000 people in 1977. The Nyamuragira volcano, 20 miles north of Goma, has produced a lava flow out of its southwest flank, a volcano expert at the U.S.

There is no fighting in the forest of the Volcanoes National Park, which is home to the primates popularized in the Hollywood movie "Gorillas in the Mist," said Jose Kalpers, coordinator of the International Gorilla Conservation Program.

Amid the misty volcanoes of Rwanda, naturalist Dian Fossey spent 18 years studying rare mountain gorillas and protecting them from poachers. Now researchers are in a battle to save the gorillas, this time from war. Rebels launched a new offensive in Rwanda's 2 1/2-year-old insurgency recently, prompting researchers and staff to flee Volcanoes National Park, where Fossey collected data for her book "Gorillas in the Mist," later made into a movie.
