Angola arrests activists over anti-government protest

Angolan authorities have arrested two human rights activists who were planning an anti-government protest, in the latest sign of repression in Africa’s second largest oil exporter, rights groups said on Wednesday.

Jose Marcos Mavungo was arrested on March 14, the day he was coordinating a demonstration in the volatile oil-producing northern enclave of Cabinda. He was charged with sedition or planning attacks against the state.
