Updated on

The World Bank agreed to give Angola $650 million in financial support to help stabilize an economy that’s reeling from a plunge in oil prices.

The Washington-based lender approved a $450 million loan and $200 million of guarantees, it said in a statement late on Wednesday. That’s the first World Bank financial aid for Angola since 2010, it said.
