Hundreds of Rwandan refugees are trying to return into Rwanda, after fleeing across the border into Zaire to avoid ethnic clashes. Many turned up early on Saturday morning (23/7) at the frontier post, saying they preferred to risk the dangers of returning home rather than to die in Zaire. Thousands of Rwandans continue to arrive in Kibumba camp, about 30 kilometres north of Goma. The road from Goma airport to the camps in Kibumba and Munigi is littered with corpses wrapped in blankets or matting, as sickness and starvation take their toll. More than two thousand dead were collected on Friday. The French Deputy Minister of Health, Philippe Douste-Blazy, meanwhile arrived in Zaire on Saturday (23/7) to assess the situation in the Rwandan refugee camps. France has already sent troops to Rwanda, where they have created a 'safety zone' in the south-west of the country.
