Whites Try Takeover In Colony
LOURENCO, Marques (UPI)

Taking advantage of a growing white backlash to Lisbon’s plans to hand the colony over to black majority rule, white extremists seized a local radio station. renamed it Radio Liberty and called for immediate independence for Mozambique under a white government.
