WORLD IN BRIEF : ETHIOPIA : Mandela Pays Visit, Returns to Tanzania

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Black nationalist Nelson R. Mandela pledged in Ethiopia that South African “freedom fighters” will struggle until they stop apartheid. Then he flew back to Tanzania to visit African National Congress military camps. Mandela spent only 24 hours in Ethiopia in a last-minute side trip during his 17-day tour, meeting President Mengistu Haile Mariam and addressing delegation chiefs from the Organization of African Unity. He planned next to fly to Iringa, 250 miles southwest of Tanzania’s main city, Dar Es Salaam.
