    Background: There's an uneasy peace in Angola as the capital, Luanda, recovers from last week's riots which left nearly one hundred dead and hundreds injured.

    The riots were believed to have resulted from a jockeying for supremacy between radical members of various liberation movements.

    The official movements have disclaimed involvement, and at least one group, the National Front for the Liberation of Angola (FNLA) has joined forces with Portuguese troops in helping to quell the violence.

    The FNLA recently established a headquarters in Luanda after being banned for many years.
