HC Deb 21 May 1973 vol 857 c21W
Mr. Soref

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations have been made to the Zambian Government over the killing in Rhodesian territory of two Canadian tourists by Zambian troops tiring from Zambia.

Lord Balniel

My right hon. Friend the Prime Minister told the House on 17th May of his distress at the tragic loss of life in this incident. I understand that the Canadian and American missions in Lusaka have been in touch with the Zambian authorities.

The Zambian Government have admitted in a public statement that the shots were fired by Zambian Army personnel and have expressed deep regret that innocent people died.—[Vol. 856, c. 1697.]
