* Four people were killed and seven injured in northeastern Angola on the margins of a police operation targeting foreign nationals suspected of diamond smuggling. The violence erupted as police rounded up ‘illegal aliens’ and seized around 3 000 diamonds, 150 vehicles and over $80 000 in cash. Three Angolans were hacked to death with machetes by foreign nationals they had accused of smuggling and an Angolan was shot dead.
