  • Description

    As the number of volunteers for the Moroccan march into Spanish Sahara approaches the 350,000 target, young Crown Prince Side Mohamed, heir to the Moroccan throne, has become involved in the operation.

    On Saturday (1 November), he reviewed a guard of honour at Marrakesh, where volunteers are gathering on their way to the border.

    The previous day (Friday, 31 October), his father, King Hassan, met top government officials to plan the next diplomatic moves in his bid to take over the neighbouring territory of Spanish Sahara.

    The King, the inspiration behind the planned march conferred in particular with his Foreign Minister, Ahmed Laraki, who had just returned from the Spanish capital, Madrid after talks on the dispute.

    The march across the border into El Aaiun, the capital of Spanish Sahara, is to start between 4 and 6 November whether negotiations to settle the dispute succeed or not.

    King Hassan was due to arrive in Agadir on Sunday (2 November) to be closer to the frontier as the date for the march approached.

    Nearly all the 350,000 volunteers for the march are already assembled at Tarfaya, a Moroccan town close to the border.
