  • Description

    A United Nations mission investigating the damage inflicted by Rhodesian forces on Zambian road and rail bridges, has called for immediate international help for Zambia. The mission was set up by the Security Council on the twenty third of November after Zambian Ambassador, Mr. Paul Lusaka, called for full compensation for the damage. Food supplies in Zambia -- where Joshua Nkomo's Patriotic Front guerrillas are based -- have been severely restricted since the November attacks. Twelve vital bridges were blown up by Rhodesian forces and, according to the Zambian government, it now has to export its minerals by air at increased cost. The government says the Tanzania-Zambia Railway has been losing more than ninety thousand dollars a day.

    SYNOPSIS: Head of the U.N. Mission Norwegian delegate Mr. Per Aasen, reported on the group's investigation.
