Former Angolan President's Son Jose dos Santos Arrested

The son of former President Jose Eduardo dos Santos is accused of illegally transferring U.S.$500 million from state coffers to a bank account in the UK. His arrest marks the latest step by President Joao Lourenco to tackle corruption and dismantle the influence of his predecessor, whose four-decade rule left Angola one of the continent's most-corrupt nations.
