U.S. Wants Probe Into Refugee Killings

Compiled From Wire Services

The United States wants a thorough and impartial United Nations investigation into alleged massacres of Rwandan refugees by soldiers loyal to Congolese President Laurent Kabila, the State Department said Monday.

Spokesman James P. Rubin made the statement after a U.N. team arrived in the Congo to begin the long-delayed investigation.

He said the investigation is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
