The U.N. Security Council, on a unanimous 15-0 vote, condemned South Africa for its “unprovoked and unwarranted” June 14 attack on the capital of neighboring Botswana and demanded compensation for the African nation. The resolution was the third condemnation of South Africa by the Security Council in a week. South Africa has defended its raid on Gaborone, which left 12 people dead, on the grounds that the Botswana capital is a base for “terrorists " of the outlawed African National Congress fighting Pretoria’s government.
