    IN NORTHERN RHODESIA, TROOPS TAKING PART IN THE INTENSIVE SEARCH FOR THE OUTLAWED PROPHETESS ALICE LENSHINA, TODAY (SUNDAY) FOUND 46 MEMBERS OF HER FANATICAL LUMPA CHURCH DEAD IN ONE OF THEIR SETTLEMENTS IN THE EASTERN PROVINCE. THEY WERE KILLED IN AN ATTACK CARRIED OUT BY ABOUT 50 LOCAL VILLAGERS ARMED WITH SHOT GUNS. IT SI BELIEVED TO BE THE FIRST REPRISAL BY OTHER VILLAGERS AGAINST THE LUMPA CHURCH FOLLOWERS. MANY OF THE BODIES ???.

    APART FROM THE PROBLEM OF FINDING THE PROPHETESS, WHO HAS NOT BEEN SEEN SINCE THE TROUBLES BEGAN A FORTNIGHT AGO, THE GOVERNMENT FACES AN ENORMOUS PROBLEM WITH REFUGEES FROM THE BITTER STRUGGLE - MANY OF THEM WOUNDED - AND THOUSANDS WITHOUT HOMES. LARGE CAMPS HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED, WHERE THE REFUGEES - MOSTLY WOMEN AND CHILDREN - CAN GET FOOD AND MEDICAL ATTENTION, UNTIL THEY CAN RETURN TO THEIR VILLAGES.

    A DETACHMENT OF TROOPS LEFT LUNDAZI THIS MORNING (SUNDAY) FOR A VILLAGE ABOUT 90-MILES NORTH, WHERE SOME 2,000 MEMBERS OF THE SECT ARE BELIEVED TO BE GATHERED.
