At the end of September new security problems arose, compelling the ICRC delegation in Angola temporarily to suspend its activities on the Planalto. In the night of 24 to 25 September the ICRC premises in Katchiungo (Huambo province), where fortunately no one was present at the time, were attacked and ransacked. After this incident the delegate general for Africa, Mr. J. M. Bornet, went to Angola from 29 September to 7 October to reexamine the situation with the delegation and to discuss with the authorities. At the end of October, the danger in the field had not diminished and continued to prevent a resumption of activities.
