He said about 120.000 others had booked the only seats available and it was reali/ed that the space was insufficient. Now special charter planes will be brought'in to cope with the rush "We tried to do our best but the maximum that we had been able to do was not enough" Ribeiro said. t * » AS HE SPOKE, Luanda Radio reported that bodies lying uncollected in the streets of battle-torn Malange. 250 miles east of Luanda.- were causing a serious threat oi a disease epidemic.
