World IN BRIEF : UNITED NATIONS : Plan to Police Camps in Zaire Dropped

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Secretary General Boutros Boutros-Ghali told a news conference in Geneva that the world body has dropped a plan to send 5,000 peacekeepers to police Rwandan refugee camps in Zaire because more than 40 member states refused to contribute troops to the planned force. The U.N. chief said the task has instead been passed on to the Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees.
