    Background: SOUTHERN ANGOLA

    The South West Africa People's Organisation says it will intensify its attacks against South African rule in Namibia following the collapse of self-government in the territory. SWAPO leader Sam Nujoma said negotiations seeking independence for Namibia were completely deadlocked, and blamed the United States fro the delay. The South African government has resumed direct rule over the territory, abandoning a four-year attempt at self-government, and sparking fears of further difficulties in implementing United Nations independence plans. Black African countries are angry at the way the Americans have linked the issue with a withdrawal of Cuban troops from Angola, where Namibian nationalist guerrillas are based. SWAPO carries out raids on Namibia from its guerrilla camps in southern Angola.
