At least 31 people were killed in two days of protests by Mozambique's opposition Renamo party against a general election result last December, a government spokesman said. Opposition leader Afonso Dhlakama said he had called off the demonstrations, and calm apparently returned to most parts of the former Portuguese colony. Renamo supporters say the election, in which Joaquim Chissano of the rival Frelimo party narrowly beat Dhlakama, was rigged.

Several thousand youths ransacked Malawi's embassy and stoned South Africa's trade mission today to protest the death of President Samora Machel, witnesses said. Reporters at the scene said police used tear gas and fired warning shots to disperse the first violent demonstration reported in Maputo since Machel led Mozambique to independence from Portugal in 1975. He was killed in a plane crash Oct. 19 just across the border in South Africa.
