Savimbi pledge on parliament

Angola's Unita rebel leader, Jonas Savimbi, promised that all Unita members of a new unity parliament would be in the capital Luanda within 24 hours, clearing the way for its long-delayed inauguration.

Mr Savimbi, who has been stalling on a commitment to send in his party's MPs, made his pledge after meeting visiting United Nations secretary general Kofi Annan.
