October 18, 1994| Associated Press

LUSAKA, Zambia — Negotiators for the Angolan government and rebels agreed to a peace treaty Monday to end their 19-year civil war, pledging a cease-fire, disarmament and creation of a new army.

Alioune Blondin Beye, the U.N. special representative who mediated the negotiations, said the 10-point agreement seeks not just to silence the guns but to heal the divisions that have led to the deaths of more than half a million Angolans.
