African leaders condemn South Africa over raids

Five African leaders condemned South Africa for its continued military attacks on neighboring countries and for the failure of last month's talks on independence for Namibia (South-West Africa).

The president of Botswana, Mozambique, Tanzania, and Zambia and Prime Minister Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe said in a communique issued after five hours of talks here that they were deeply concerned by "South Africa's destabilization policy in the region." they added that the South-West Africa People's Organization "had no alternative but to intensify the liberation war in Namibia and . . . reaffirmed their unflinching support for SWAPO."
