Angolan Boy Dies After Being Shot By Angolan Troops

RUNDU, Namibia (PANA) - A 13-year-old Angolan boy died at Namibia's Rundu Hospital on Saturday after being shot in the neck by Angolan Armed Forces (FAA) in southern Angola on Friday morning.
The boy, identified as Joseph Nankali, was wounded by FAA members who tried to stop his group from fleeing Mbuga village in Angola to seek refuge in Namibia.

Another boy and a girl are reported to be in critical condition at the same hospital after being shot in the same incident.

Meanwhile, the Namibian Police at Kahenge, about 130 km west of Rundu, confirmed four people from this group managed to join at least 40 other Angolan refugees in Namibia.
