Angola accused South Africa of violating its airspace and massing troops along its southern border and said such activity in the past has indicated that an invasion was being prepared. Angola’s Defense Ministry, quoted by the official Angolan news agency ANGOP, said it recorded 22 violations of Angolan airspace over the last week by South African planes. It charged that South Africa, which formally withdrew its forces from southern Angola in April, has four motorized brigades and 15 battalions totaling 20,000 men positioned along the Angolan border.
