Recent rebel attack killed 150 villagers, Angola says

Rebel guerrillas killed more than 150 people and wounded 100 in a village in southern Angola two months ago, the official Angolan news agency said.

The guerrillas, presumably belonging to the opposition National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA), attacked the village of Bunjei with South African weapons and grenades, killing men, women, and children, the news agency said. UNITA has fought Angola's Marxist government since independence from Portugal in 1975.
