Angola is being asked to develop "an all-inclusive strategy" for migrants in the country, many of whom are from neighbouring states.

The appeal has been made by a UN expert on the human rights of migrants who has completed an eight-day visit to the country.

Francois Crépeau said undocumented migrants, asylum seekers and refugees in Angola are continuously harassed and intimidated by the police.

They are also arrested regularly and detained in large numbers.

He tells Amina Hassan how the authorities can create "a more secure environment" for these people.
