JOHANNESBURG - Child malnutrition in Angola is now believed to have reached levels worse than at any previous time in over 20 years of civil war, according to a new report published last week.
There are signs that the United Nations Observer Mission in Angola (MONUA) is struggling to meet its international obligations as military attacks by the rebel movement UNITA increase. The decision by the UN Security Council on 29 April to cut the size of MONUA's troops from 1,045 to 450 by the end of June has reduced the ability of MONUA to verify government allegations of attacks by UNITA, at the same time as military tension has risen in the country.
