Soldiers of Rwanda's new Tutsi-led government began trickling into a formerly French-protected "safe zone" in the country's southwest -- the last territory not under the victorious rebels' control. United Nations officials worry that about 500,000 Hutus there, fearing Tutsi reprisals, might flee to the already-deluged refugee camps in neighboring Zaire. The U.N. officials cited scattered reports of apparent revenge killings by Tutsi officials, even though the new government has pledged to take no revenge for Hutu massacres of at least half a million Tutsi brethren during Rwanda's three-month civil war. Meanwhile, the defeated Hutu leadership -- criticized for intimidating fellow Hutus who wished to return home from Zaire -- was removed today to a separate border camp.
