The World

Ethiopia has decided to reopen the Ibnet feeding camp that was emptied and burned last week by government soldiers, and more than 35,000 famine victims have begun streaming back into it, an American relief official in Addis Ababa reported. “None of us anticipated this avalanche of people,” said Dr. Tony Atkins, director of World Vision International. He said there is no shortage of food at Ibnet, 250 miles north of Addis Ababa, but there is a severe health hazard because of poor sanitation and lack of shelter. Government messengers went into the hills early this week to tell people it was all right to return.
