  • Description

    The head of an Israeli-financed commando group, which is hunting fugitive Ugandan leader Idi Amin, claims that the ousted President is organising a last stand. Speaking to reporters in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, on Sunday (27 May) Daniel Waltener--an American of French extraction-- said that hundreds and possibly thousands of Arab mercenaries are being flown into Uganda to fight for President Amin. Mr Waltener also claimed that members of his group had Amin under constant surveillance close to the north-western Ugandan town of Arua and had seem military equipment and personnel being unloaded from heavy transport aircraft. Of Mrs Dora Bloch, the 73-year-old Israeli woman who disappeared from a kampala hospital in July 1976, Mr Waltener said he had found her remains and was making efforts to have them scientifically examined.
