Zimbabwe black candidate calls fro British policing

Joshua Nkomo, a Patriotic Front leader kicked off the election campaign of his newly renamed party wednesday with a call for more British troops to police rather than merely monitor the nearly three-week-old truce. The black leader said government militiamen should be confined to barracks and Commonwealth troops be deployed to prevent the possibility of clashes between the security forces and the guerrillas.

Meanwhile, the British interim government accused guerrillas led by Mr. Nkomo's rival, Robert Mugabe, of violating the truce with deception and intimidation. Mr. Mugabe has led the rival wing of the Patriotic Front.
