BUJUMBURA : A Front-Row Seat

Political instablity, mass refugee displacement and intractable ethnic tensions--the problems of Africa's tiny nations of Rwanda and Burundi--will bring together officials of the United Nations, Western governments and the Organization for African Unity this Wednesday.

The combination conference and summit is to be held in Burundi's capital, Bujumbura. Participants are sure to get a close-up feel of regional tensions since the city is under a dusk-to-dawn curfew because of strife on the streets related to the aftereffects of the war in Rwanda.
