  • Description

    In the Angolan capital Luanda the first witnesses for the prosecution have been appearing in the trial of 13 mercenary soldiers who face the death sentence for their role in the recent Angolan civil war. One has described how white mercenary leader and former British paratrooper Costas Georgiou, known as Colonel Callan, was in command when up to 73 Angolans were slaughtered. After the warning by presiding judge Mr. Ernesto Teixeira da Silva that Callan might try to do something unexpected, the Cypriot born Londoner again appeared in handcuffs on Monday. The BBC's Martin Bell reports on the effect it had on the court.
