§ 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.]
