    Background: Bishop Abel Muzorewa--leader of the African National Council (ANC)--returned to the Rhodesian capital, Salisbury, on Friday (6 June) to lead his organisation into crucial talks with the Rhodesian Government.

    But, before the talks begin -- they are scheduled for next week -- the Bishop has the task of patching up differences within the ANC, under whose banner nationalists groups merged last December.

    Two days after the Bishop's return home -- on Sunday (8 June) -- a bomb placed outside his house shattered windows, although the Bishop's family, who were home at the time, were unhurt.

    Since Bishop Muzorewa has been abroad on a month-long trip-which included attendance at the Commonwealth Conference in Jamaica-Zimbabwe African National Union (ZANU) and the Zimbabwe African People's Union (ZAPU).

    Salisbury's black townships were torn by riots on Sunday (1 June) when police shot dead 11 Africans as they tried ??? quell fighting between supporters of the two groups.

    Before leaving London for Salisbury, Bishop Muzorewa said he did not rule out the possibility that agents provocateurs of the Rhodesian Government are attempting to stir up inter-group rivalry and violence in Rhodesia.
