Rights group says Angola cracking down on activists

File picture shows police arresting protesters in Luanda, the capital of Angola, where the International Federation for Human Rights says rights activists and journalists are increasingly being targeted by the regimeHuman rights activists and journalists are increasingly being targeted by the regime of Angolan President Jose Eduardo dos Santos, a rights group said in a report Thursday, days after two activists were arrested in Africa’s second-largest oil producer. The International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) who published the report along with an Angolan rights group AJPD, accused the government of resorting to harassment and intimidation to tackle any opposition. The report comes on the heels of the arrest of activists Marcos Mavungo and Arao Bula Tempo in the northern oil producing enclave of Cabinda on March 14, hours before an anti-government protest. Several rights organisations, including Amnesty International, have called for the immediate release of the two men.
