  • Description

    President Moise Tshombe of the Congo breakaway State of Katanga, flew into Brussels December 5 at the invitation of the Belgian Government. Crowds greeted his arrival, some waving the Katanga flag. Two little white girls were dressed in skirts made from the flag as they stepped forward to present bouquets.

    He will stay four days in Brussels. An unconfirmed report says he will be received by King Baudouin, who, it is believed, will confer an honour on him.

    At the airport Mr. Tshombe said he was carrying a wedding gift for King Baudouin and Dona Fabiola from the people of Katanga. He did not say what it was.
