Ex-president dos Santos’ body lands in Angola


The body of Angola’s Jose Eduardo dos Santos, who died in Spain last month, arrived in Luanda on Saturday, ending a weeks-long feud over the repatriation of the ex-president’s corpse.

A plane carrying the remains landed in the Angolan capital from Barcelona in the evening, AFP reporters at the scene said.

Only a few dozen people had gathered at Luanda’s airport to welcome the former president’s casket. “I was told he was going to arrive, so I came to greet him. It was a nice welcome,” said Wilson Miguel, one of those in attendance.
