Rebels collect arms of Zairian soldiers and execute some By TINA SUSMAN The Associated Press KINSHASA, Zaire — Rebel soldiers sealed their hold on the capital Sunday with a mix of discipline and brutality, setting up sites for defeated government troops to turn in weapons — and then executing some of them in anger. A day after the rebels' euphoric march into Kinshasa, Zairians celebrated their arrival amid the remnants of battle: charred bodies lying on the road and Red Cross trucks loaded with corpses. In the La Cite district, residents danced around the burnt remains of seven soldiers killed by the rebels. Witnesses said two of them were still alive when they were set on fire. Other scalded bodies lay on the road to the airport. Thousands of troops from Laurent Kabila's rebel army fanned out across the city, capturing the riverside palace of ousted President Mobutu Sese Seko and the fortified military base that protected it. Crowds swarmed through the palace, looting everything from swimming pool slides to chandeliers as rebel troops watched. The mansion of Mobutu's son, Kongulu, also was trashed. Togolese state television reported Sunday that Mobutu had spent Saturday night in Togo before leaving for Morocco about 9:30 a.m. Sunday. Togo is run by an old friend of Mobutu, the dictator Gnassingbe Eyadema. The report said Mobutu had slipped out of his home village in northern Zaire, Gbadolite, aboard his cargo plane Saturday night. About 200 people were killed during Saturday's rebel takeover of Kinshasa, according to Red Cross spokesman Nick Sommer. Red Cross workers on Sunday were working their way through the capital's streets, picking up bodies in their trucks. It was unclear how many of the people had been killed resisting advancing rebels and how many were murdered in revenge attacks. The rebels quickly ordered government troops to surrender their weapons by the end of the day and set up disarmament sites at military camps throughout Kinshasa. Thousands of soldiers, unpaid by the previous regime and eager for change, readily complied, tying white cloths around their heads to show support for Kabila. They marched into military camps past taunting crowds who vented their anger at years of abuse. T TEXAS STANDOFF Grandfather to search for fugitive Authorities haven't seen Kansas man who fled Republic compound By The Associated Press DALLAS — The grandfather of the lone fugitive from the Republic of Texas standoff plans to travel more than 1,000 miles next weekend to search for his 22-year- old namesake in the remote, sun- seared Davis Mountains. "We've got to know if he's alive or dead," Richard Keyes said Sunday of his grandson, Richard Keyes III, who fled into the rugged West Texas wilderness May 3 after the separatist group's weeklong standoff with authorities. "We're going to go to the last place anyone reported seeing him, then go from there," Keyes said in a telephone interview from his home in Vincennes, Ind. The younger Keyes, who is from St. Marys, Kan., and another Republic of Texas sympathizer, Mike Matson, fled before the others in the group laid down their arms T OIL SPILL and surrendered. Matson, 48, was killed in a Shootout with officers on May 5. Authorities canceled the search for Keyes the following day, saying it was too expensive to conduct an extensive manhunt in such a hostile terrain, inhabited mostly by mountain lions and rattlesnakes. But they said they would continue to search for Keyes, who is wanted on federal charges of organized criminal activity and kidnapping related to a hostage-taking April 27 that sparked the stalemate. The grandfather said he has a good rapport with the man who celebrated his birthday Saturday and that if he encounters him, he would "try to talk him into coming out and giving himself up." The 66-year-old pediatrician said he is hopeful about the search, but doesn't know if his grandson could survive the conditions. "I don't know how good a woodsman he was," Keyes said. "I know he could read a compass, he was very good at that. But otherwise, I don't know. ... We don't know what he had in the way of survival equipment." The elder Keyes said he planned to bring his hiking boots, blue jeans, rain jacket and a cap for the weekend search, but "no knives, no guns, nothing like." He said Ron Beames, a resident of the Davis Mountains Resort where the Republic had its ramshackle "embassy," is helping coordinate the search that will include an undetermined number of volunteers. "We really need everyone we can get to help us," Beames told the San Angelo Standard-Times. During the standoff, Beames had pleaded for a peaceful resolution to the standoff but often had his own confrontation with law- enforcement officers. At one point, a Texas Ranger whom Beames had pushed threatened to send him to jail. Keyes said he had to do something because he has grown frustrated about the lack of information he's received. Spill threatens Louisiana marshland By The Associated Press COCODRIE, La. — A spill of more than 10,000 gallons of oil from a ruptured underground pipeline threatened sensitive marshlands around a Louisiana lake. The oil gushed from the Texaxo pipeline Friday on Lake Barre, creating a slick seven miles long and two miles wide by Saturday. More than 200 workers used containment booms to recover more than 4,000 gallons by late Sunday. "We have made good progress, but we still have more work to do," Texaco spokesman Fred Palmer said. Texaco estimated the spill at 10,500 to 16,800 gallons of medium- weight oil. The 16-inch line buried under eight feet of mud was shut down about 10 minutes after the rupture was discovered. The cause had not been determined. The company had been installing a parallel pipeline about 15 feet from the one that burst, but no excavation work was being done at the time. "This is a serious spill," Texaco spokesman Pierre DeGruy said. The state had not decided whether to allow people to trawl today when the shrimp season opens. That will depend on the progress of the cleanup, said Kerry St. Pe of the state Department of Environmental Quality. The oil had crossed over some flooded islands of the saltwater marsh on the lake's northern edge.
