Kigali (Reuter) - Troops of Rwanda's ousted Hutu government are preparing to go back to war and fighters have already made incursions to harass and kill civilians, the UN's envoy and officers from the Rwandese Patriotic Front said yesterday. Ambassador Shaharyar Khan said UN military personnel had spotted men in military fatigues, with guns and supplies, crossing the border into south-west Rwanda from neighbouring Burundi and Zaire. He described the movement as 'classic preparations for guerrilla warfare' in a memorandum sent to UN headquarters in New York. Rwanda's new Interior Minister, Seth Sendashonga, said he had been informed of increased shootings in the zone in the last 48 hours.
