Just in! Angolan President Returns After Medical Trip To Spain

Angolan President Jose Eduardo dos Santos has returned from Barcelona after a “private visit” that came a month after the 74-year-old leader spent several weeks in the Spanish city receiving medical treatment.

Dos Santos, Africa’s second-longest ruler, arrived in Luanda late on Wednesday after leaving for Spain on July 3, authorities said, without giving details of his trip or his condition.
