Rwanda Cease-Fire Set

NAIROBI -- A cease-fire to end three weeks of slaughter in Rwanda held Tuesday except for sporadic firing in the capital Kigali. UN officials said more than 330,000 people had fled to neighboring countries to escape the tribal bloodbath which has killed an estimated 100,000. The officials reported only small arms fire in a Kigali area held by Rwanda Patriotic Front rebels. They said only sporadic exchanges marred the first 11 hours of a unilateral Patriotic Front cease-fire from midnight.
