Abstract
UNHCR reports that Burundi refugee numbers remain high. Mortality rates decline but remain fragile as food situation stabilizes. ICRC plans to phase out aid in the demilitarized zone following the June harvest, but is continuing to assist war-displaced returning to their homes in the RPF zone. Numbers of spontaneous returnees increase as UNHCR/WFP assistance begins. Rwandan soldiers have orders not to let displaced persons cross to RPF zone.
