Angolan Police Detain, Beat Protesters: Activist
Demonstrators said on Wednesday, Angolan police have beaten and detained 20 people protesting against the killing of three activists by security forces. The youth-driven Angolan Revolutionary Movement has staged several protests since 2011, accusing security forces of murder and President Jose Eduardo dos Santos of restricting political freedom during his 34 years at the helm of Africa’s No. 2 oil producer. Two activists involved in protests to demand payment of state wage arrears were killed by security forces in May 2012, prosecutors said in November. At least four security officials have been investigated but no trial date has been set.
