Amnesty International has recently received reports confirming that at least
two other people were killed by government soldiers during demonstrations in
Cabinda on 9 and 10 of November 1991. This brings the total number of people
killed known to Amnesty to six. According to some sources, however, as many
as 16 demonstrators may have been killed.
In a further incident on 26 November a group of soldiers are reported to have
opened fire in the market place in Cabinda wounding 20 women traders. The
following day, soldiers reportedly shot and wounded a group of school children
as they were coming from school.Some were seriously injured. The reasons for
these attacks are not known but they appear to have been unprovoked.
FURTHER RECOMMENDED ACTION: Telegrams/telexes/airmail letters:
- Expressing concern about reports that at least six people and possibly as
many as 16 civilians were shot dead and dozens of others were wounded by soldiers
during demonstrations in Cabinda on 9 and 10 November 1991;
- expressing concern that about 20 women and an unspecified number of children
were wounded, some of them seriously, in a reportedly unprovoked attack by
soldiers on 26 and 27 November 1991 in Cabinda;
- requesting clarification of these reports;
- explaining that the such arbitrary killings are violations of human rights,
both of the right to freedom of assembly and to freedom of expression and of
the right to life;
- calling for a thorough, independent and impartial inquiry into these reports,
for the findings of the inquiry to be made public and for those responsible
for any unlawful killings to be brought to justice.
