    The President of the High Executive Council of Southern Sudan, General Joseph Lagu, has accused Tanzanian troops of worse atrocities in Northern Uganda than those committed by Idi Amin's soldiers. Ugandan refugees pouring into southern Sudan claim the Tanzanians have singled out Moslems and killed them. Sudan and the United Nations High Commission for Refugees say thirty thousand Ugandan refugees have registered in the south of the Sudan where food is already scare, and that another seventy thousand have crossed the border. General Lagu says none will be sent back to Uganda against their will.
