Angolan rebel group kill 10 soldiers

A rebel group in Angola says it has killed 10 soldier and wounded nine in fighting in the oil-producing Cabinda region. 

The Front for the Liberation of the Enclave of Cabinda (FLEC), which wants independence for a region which accounts for half of Angola's oil output, has taken a more militant stance since the death of its 88-year-old founder Nzita Tiago earlier this year in exile in France, Reuters says.  

In its statement on Monday, FLEC also called on China's government to repatriate all its citizens in the oil-producing area as their presence "constitutes a provocation", the agency reports.
