Refugee Repatriation

NAIROBI () -- Repatriation of 1.1 million Rwandan Hutu refugees announced by Zaire and Rwanda could start within a few days, an exiled Rwandan Hutu lobby group said Friday.

Innocent Butare, executive secretary of the Rally for the Return of Refugees and Democracy in Rwanda, which says it has the support of Rwanda's exiled Hutus, appealed to the international community to deter the two countries from going ahead with what it termed a "forced and inhuman action."
