The State Department advises against travel to Rwanda and recommends that Americans living there leave. Fighting broke out in the East African country last month between Government forces and armed Rwandan exiles from Uganda.

Because of the conflict, the Rawandan government established a curfew between 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. and set up roadblocks and checkpoints in the capital city of Kigali. A State Department official said that many Americans have left Rwanda in the past few weeks and that most of those who remain are U.S. government personnel and their dependents.
