Angola's civil war has caused 60,000 deaths, displaced 750,000 people and cost an estimated $12 billion since it began in 1975, Angolan President Jose Eduardo dos Santos said Monday.

The official news agency ANGOP, monitored here, quoted Dos Santos as blaming the war and economic difficulties on South Africa and its support for the rebel National Union for the Total Independence of Angola, or UNITA.
