Initial reports indicated that dozens of Honduran troops swept into a camp housing Salvadoran refugees, killing two people including a baby and wounding at least 28 in a machine-gun attack, the Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees said in Geneva. The troops were searching for guerrillas when they apparently launched an unprovoked assault in the Colomoncagua camp near the border, an agency spokesman reported. He said U.N. officials are investigating.
