Mr Mandela was in Ethiopia at the invitation of the emperor, an ardent supporter of Africa’s decolonisation and African unity.

At the time, Ethiopia had one of the strongest armed forces on the continent.

Its troops were part of the UN peacekeeping operation during the Congo crisis in 1960 and a decade earlier Ethiopian soldiers had fought in the Korean war.

And the emperor had invited many other African liberation struggle fighters to be trained on Ethiopian soil.

As well as learning how to commit acts of sabotage, Mr Mandela’s military training also included briefings on military science, how to run an army and how to use a gun. More detail http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-23515879
