"The documents show how she and her husband were allowed to buy valuable state assets in a series of suspicious deals."

"A banker implicated in the embezzlement and money-laundering case against Africa's richest woman, Isabel dos Santos, has been found dead in Lisbon.

"Nuno Ribeiro da Cunha, 45, managed the account of oil firm Sonangol, formerly chaired by Ms Dos Santos, at the small Portuguese lender EuroBic.

"His death, on Wednesday, was reported on Thursday soon after Angolan prosecutors named both as suspects."
