  • Description

    Three Spanish helicopter pilots landed at the United Nations base, Kitona, recently after being imprisoned for two days by Congolese troops.

    They were arrested at Roma, near Matadi, Mar 3, and stripped of all their clothing during their stay in prison. They were released Mar 5 and given permission to fly their aircraft on to Kitona. It was said that their stay in gaol was shortened by the release of two Congolese soldiers by the UN authorities.

    The pilots were I. Schylstroem of Stockholm, H. Jonasson of Boden and M. Karlsson of Stockholm.
