Angola security forces accused of unlawful killings

Security forces in Angola have unlawfully killed at least 15 people and carried out other grave abuses against activists and protestors since January 2023. According to New York-based Human Rights Watch, the police and state security services also carried out arbitrary arrests and detained hundreds of people. In a response to the AFP news agency, Angola’s governing MPLA refuted HRW’s report saying that investigations were underway.
