- Edouard Balladur will be at the UN headquarters in New York this afternoon. He goes once again with Alain Juppé to ask for an international mobilization to develop humanitarian aid in Rwanda. There are over a million refugees to save and most of them have no idea where to go.
- Most often barefoot, the refugees carry their meager wealth on their heads, straw mattresses, blankets, a little food and sometimes even a goat. We met them south of Gikongoro on the road to Zaire, the only asphalt road in the country. They were unable or unwilling to stay in the camps in the region. So they've been walking, for a week or more, as long as they have feet, they say. The small group left their village on May 25, fleeing the war. Accompanied by about twenty children, they only walk every other day and sleep by the side of the road in the forest.
- The French soldiers would like to stabilize the flow of these families inside the security zone. But the prospect of their departure at the end of the month or a little later risks precipitating the movement towards Zaire because most of the refugees fear reprisals from the Rwandan Patriotic Front.
