South Africa, breaking from its cautious diplomacy on the troubled Great Lakes region, yesterday denounced a guerrilla campaign being waged by Hutu rebels and urged the international community to act. Condemning the slaughter of nine Roman Catholic nuns at a convent in Rwanda's north- west by Hutu rebels earlier this month, South Africa's Department of Foreign Affairs said in a statement the Tutsi-led Kigali government should be supported.
