U.S. sends more supplies to help Zaire repel invasion United Press International KINSHASA, Zaire — A second shipment of emergency U.S. aid was on its way to Zaire today to help government troops fight an invasion of the copper-rich Shaba province. Officials denied reports of fresh clashes in the area.

A similar consignment w'as sent last week. A government spokesman in Washington said an additional re quest from Zairean President Mobutu Sese Seke w'as “being studied by the State Department in close consultation with the White House. No weapons have been supplied. The insurgents crossed over from Marxist-ruled Angola some two weeks ago and captured several towns and villages on Zaire’s south western border with Angola. The bulk of the invasion force, es timated at around 1,500, is believed to be remnants of the militia that fought to sever the province, then known as Katanga, away from Zaire following independence in 1960. Zaire has accused Angola, Cuba and the Soviet Union of backing the assault, but Cuban leader Fidel Castro, who is on an extensive tour of Africa, said in Mozambique the allegations are false.
