Congo Probe Stalled

KINSHASA, Congo ()-- President Laurent Kabila has blocked the United Nations' path to alleged massacre sites in the jungles of former Zaire, but investigators said Monday they would not pull out of the country immediately.


An advance UN team in the capital Kinshasa said Sunday the government had rejected two non-negotiable terms for the investigation, set down in April in a resolution of the UN Commission on Human Rights.


The mission follows allegations that Kabila's Tutsi-backed rebels or their Rwandan or Ugandan allies killed an unknown number of Rwandan Hutu refugees as they marched across Zaire before toppling president Mobutu Sese Seko in May.
