Angola signs peace with Cabinda separatist faction

A separatist rebel faction from Angola’s oil-producing northern Cabinda province signed a peace deal with the central government on Tuesday, which gives special status to the restive coastal enclave. Separatists led by the Front for the Liberation of the Enclave of Cabinda have fought for independence since Portugal relinquished control over Angola in 1975.
