Hutus finally quit Kibeho

Kigali - The last 546 Hutus holding out at the Kibeho camp in south-west Rwanda surrendered to government soldiers who massacred about 2,000 refugees 19 days ago. Most of the survivors fled, but hundreds took refuge in a school building, where they lived on rainwater and the few rations they had with them.

The final group was taken by truck to Butare for screening before being returned to their home villages. As they left the camp, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr George Carey arrived in Rwanda, saying he had not come to "judge or condemn". AFP
