Negotiations began in New York on ending South Africa's 73-year rule over neighboring Namibia and fixing a timetable for the withdrawal of an estimated 50,000 Cuban troops from Marxist-ruled Angola.

Crocker, assistant secretary of state for African affairs, is expected to end late today or Wednesday.
