  • Description

    ETHIOPIA HAS SENT JET FIGHTER AIRCRAFT TO THE CONGO TO HELP THE GOVERNMENT CRUSH THE REMNANTS OF THE MERCENARY-LED REBELLION IN THE CONGO'S EASTERN PROVINCE.

    MILITARY AID AND PERSONNEL ARRIVED AT KINSHASA EARLIER THIS MONTH. A DC-4 AIRCRAFT OF THE ETHIOPIAN AIR FORCE BROUGHT THE MATERIAL. THE AIRCRAFT WAS MET AT THE NJILI AIRPORT BY THE ETHIOPIAN AMBASSADOR TO CONGO-KINSHASA. THE ETHIOPIAN PERSONNEL LATER WENT TO PRESIDENT MOBUTU'S RESIDENCE WHERE THEY WERE PRESENTED TO THE CONGOLESE LEADER.

    IT IS EXPECTED THAT THE ETHIOPIAN JET FIGHTERS WILL OPERATE FROM THE KATANGESE MILITARY AIRBASE OF KAMINA. EARLY THIS MONTH, THE CONGOLESE GOVERNMENT HAS ASKED ETHIOPIA FOR MILITARY AID.
