Calling the massacre of hundreds of refugees "a heinous act of terror," Angola has urged the United Nations to prosecute rebel leader Jonas Savimbi for war crimes. About 10,000 people marched Saturday through Luanda, the capital, in a government-organized demonstration to protest the ambush of a refugee train in northwestern Angola on Aug. 10. More than 250 people were killed. The train was packed with more than 500 refugees who were fleeing fighting between the government and UNITA rebels.
