NPR's Ted Clark reports on fears that the southern African nation of Angola could be headed for a renewal of its civil war. A recent upsurge in clashes is threatening the country's painstakingly-constructed peace process. The government and the United Nations blame the rebel group UNITA for most of the violence; UNITA denies the charges. The UN is sending a special envoy this weekend, amid reports that the government is planning a large-scale offensive against the rebels.
