Zaire and Rwanda's new Tutsi-led government began U.N.-mediated talks on how to persuade more than a million Hutu refugees encamped near Zairian border towns to return home. But even under the umbrella of U.N. neutrality, the Rwandan officials are not likely to get far without some cooperation from the defeated Hutu leaders. Hutu soldiers are roaming the camps and threatening the few refugees who are inclined to return. A dose of the atmosphere from U.N. spokesman Ray Wilkinson: "One Hutu (in defiance of the Hutu soldiers) got up and started suggesting that people should go back home to Rwanda. A crowd gathered, they started accusing him of being a spy."
