In Cape Verde islands off northwest Africa, eleven men including eight soldiers have been killed at a military telecommunications centre. Officials said, it is suspected that a missing soldier carried out the attack. The government said in a statement that two Spanish technicians and a local civilian were among those killed yesterday in Monte Tchota, north of the capital Praia, at the army-guarded centre. Spain's Foreign Ministry

confirmed the deaths of two its citizens.
The statement added that there was no link between the violent killing and drug-trafficking, following media reports that raised the possibility of an attack in retaliation for recent major drug seizures on the archipelago. Cape Verde is an impoverished archipelago lying 500 kilometres off the coast of Senegal. It is a former Portuguese colony and home to half a million people.
