    Background: Students in Dahomey have organised the latest in a series of demonstrations throughout Africa, following the death of Dr. Amilcar Cabral, the Portuguese Guinea nationalist leader.

    About 5,000 students marched through the streets of Cotonou on Thursday (25 January) in an incident-free protest which included chanting outside several embassies.

    SYNOPSIS: Five thousand students marched through the streets of Cotonou, the capital of Dahomey, this week. They were protesting at the murder of Dr. Amilcar Cabral, the Portuguese Ginea nationalist leader who was operating from Guinea. Embassies were on the route of the protest march, which went off without any incidents.

    The demonstration was one of many which have been held throughout Africa following Dr. Cabral's death.

    The demonstrators shouted anti-imperialist slogans, and widened the theme of their protest to condemn colonialism and foreign interference in African affairs.

    Meanwhile, the murder of Dr. Cabral is being investigated in Guinea by a special committee. it includes eight ambassadors and leaders of two anti-Portuguese guerrilla organisations. Several members of Dr. Cabral's organisation have been accused of the murder.
