Portugal waiting for Congo to let Bemba travelé.

Portugal is waiting for formal Congolese government approval to receive ex-warlord Jean-Pierre Bemba, accused of treason after his militia fought government forces last month, the Portuguese ambassador said on Sunday.

Bemba, whose personal guard fought a two-day battle in the Congolese capital Kinshasa in March after refusing to disarm, had been expected to leave for Lisbon this weekend.
