At least 107 refugees were killed and 30 wounded in an attack on a camp housing Tutsis from former Zaire in Rwanda's northwestern border region of Gisenyi. United Nations spokeswoman Pamela O'Toole said preliminary reports indicated that the ethnic Tutsis, who fled fighting in the Masisi region in eastern Zaire, were massacred with machetes by unidentified attackers late on Thursday night. Rwandan government officials put the death toll higher at 120, including local civilians. Reuters - Geneva.
