Rwandan rebels captured a 'death camp' and rescued 38,000 refugees, mostly their minority Tutsi kinfolk held by the mainly Hutu government army, Reuter reports from Kigali.

'It was a death camp,' an aid worker said after the capture of the village of Kabgayi south of Kigali. 'Perhaps we can start helping the refugees there now that the army has gone.' A UN official said 'They took Kabgayi over without a fight.'

In the capital Kigali, a rebel mortar bomb killed at least five people and wounded 50 when it slammed into the main market.
