Explosion kills 22 in Russiani
apartment building bombing

MOSCOW (AP) - Russia's prime
minister flew yesterday to the site of an
explosion that killed at least 22 people,
including nine children, in a building
housing Russian service officers and
their families.
Although dozens of people were res-
cued alive, at least 33 people were still
missing, including the unit commander
and his deputy, the ITAR-Tass news
agency said. Interfax said the number of
missing was closer to 40.
The pre-dawn explosion Saturday.
destroyed at least 41 of the apartments in
the building in Kaspyisk, a town on the
Caspian Sea in Dagestan, a southern
Russian republic neighboring Chechnya.
President Boris Yeltsin sent his condo-
lences to the victims and Prime Minister

families, lived in the building.

e Washington Post
WASHINGTON - The Clinton
administration may be able to scale
back planned U.S. military action to
ease the humanitarian crisis in central
Africa and may wind up helping to
provide aid to refugees inside Rwanda
instead of securing an airport as a base
of assistance operations in neighbor-
ing Zaire, senior U.S. officials said
sterday.
A formal decision on the nature of
tie U.S. aid will be reached
Wednesday, at a meeting with
European nations, officials said. They
said they were cheered by the continu-
iig exodus of refugees to their homes
iin Rwanda from camps in Zaire, but

No one knew how many really had
returned, because all attempts to count,
feed or register the arrivals were over-
whelmed. But if the estimates were
even close to accurate, they meant that

that U.S. military forces could still
play a role by helping aid reach them
in Rwanda.
On Wednesday President Clinton
had agreed to send 1,000 ground
troops and another 3,000 to 4,000 sup-
port troops as part of a multinational
rescue mission to Zaire to be spear-
headed by Canada.
"Now we're looking more at logistic
support ... to make sure that the
humanitarian assistance is given prop-
erly," U.S. Ambassador to the United
Nations Madeleine Albright said on
CNN's "Late Edition" yesterday.
She said U.S. experts dispatched to
the region estimate that between
12,000 and 15,000 refugees are cross-

ing from Zaire to Rwanda every hour,
with between 300,000 and 400,000
already back in their homeland.
The chief of a U.S. military team
sent to assess the crisis has been meet-
ing with the Rwandan government to
discuss "several alternative plans to
send logistics support in there if neces-
sary" on a day's notice, Secretary of
Defense William Perry said on NBC's
"Meet the Press."
Perry added that roughly "2,000 peo-
ple and dozens of airplanes" have been
put on standby to provide the support.
The Rwandan government has said
so far that it welcomes international
humanitarian aid but opposes the dis-
patch of foreign troops to its territory.

CHILD CARE
Continued from Page 1A
developing the program and has made it
a focus in her administration.
"I think this university really does
need to say we support child care and
we support it with public funds," Rose
said, adding that "this was just step
one."
Rose said the task force will continue
to consider other solutions to lowering
the cost for student parents. The group
also will discuss staff and faculty needs,
she said.
"We have a preliminary University
agreement that child care needs to be
dealt with," Rose said.

Regent Daniel Horning (R-Grand
Haven) said he voted for the program
because it benefits students, but would
not have supported a similar program
for faculty and staff.
"It's not to become an entitlement
program," Horning said. "It's for stu-
dent need:'
Several regents said the issue is the
need to provide access to students who
may otherwise find it financially diffi-
cult to attend the University.
"We also spend general fund money
on a variety of other activities also
designed to increase student access to
this University," said Regent Philip
Power (D-Ann Arbor).
Provost J. Bernard Machen told the

board that the University already
spends close to $140 million in general
fund money for student financial aid.
Interim President Homer Neal noted
that $73,000 is a small part of the gen-
eral fund.
Baker asked for a more thorough
report evaluating the need for child caye
on campus. He said the task force's pro-
posal is a "policy that is based on emo-
tion and not on fact."
The lengthy child care discussion and
policy debate lasted for about an hour.
"By the time we get this figured out,
the kids are going to be old enough to
take care of themselves," Horning said.

the bulk of the 700,000 refugees in the
giant camps that once surrounded the
Zairian city of Goma were on their way
home.
The rest of that group - made up
mostly of 40,000 former Rwandan
army soldiers, tens of thousands of rad-
ical Hutu militiamen and their families
- were being chased deeper into the
remote mountains of Zaire by the Tutsi-

dominated rebel alliance that has
already seized control of a 200-mile-
wide strip of eastern Zaire in an anti-
government revolt.
Still, 500,000 other Hutu refugees
remained unaccounted for, lost in the
maelstrom of fighting and fleeing that
followed the first rebel offensive in the
Uvira and Bukavu areas of South Kivu
province last month.
