FLEC announces death of 12 people in clashes in Cabinda enclave

The Cabinda State Liberation Front (FLEC) this Wednesday announced the death of four soldiers from the Angolan Armed Forces, in clashes in that enclave, which also killed six civilians and two of their fighters.


In a so-called "war communiqué" signed by Brigadier General and spokesman for the General Staff of the Cabinda Armed Forces (FAC), António do Rosário, FLEC reported that the clashes took place on Tuesday night, at Chuvovo village, Massabi region.

According to the same information, the incidents occurred "due to provocation by the Angolan Army that violated the recently decreed ceasefire in the territory of Cabinda".

FLEC, through its "armed wing", the FAC, fights for independence in the territory, claiming that the enclave was a Portuguese protectorate, as established in the Treaty of Simulambuco, signed in 1885, and not an integral part of the Angolan territory.

Created in 1963, the independence organization split and multiplied into different, ephemeral factions, with FLEC / FAC remaining the only movement that claims to maintain an "armed resistance" against the Luanda administration.
