Kigali (Reuter) - Youths claiming loyalty to Rwanda's embattled President have killed 53 members of the minority Tutsi tribe and opposition in violence triggered by talks to end a tribally based civil war.

Government sources said yesterday that 53 people had died in fighting on Monday. It was the most serious outbreak of violence in a showdown between the government and President Juvenal Habyarimana over who should negotiate with rebels.
