United Nations Peacekeeping: Angola

In part four of a week-long series on United Nations Peacekeeping, NPR's Melissa Block reports on Angola's continuing civil war. Three years ago, the UN had 7,000 peacekeeping troops in the African nation. At the time, it was the UN's largest mission. Now the UN troops are out as the country's rebels carry on a fight for independence that started in 1975.
