Background: At a news conference in Rabat yesterday, King Hassan confirmed that General Ou???kir, who shot himself last week, had been plotting against him for the best part of a year. The King said he had first become suspicious of the General when more than a thousand soldiers involved in an attempt on his life last July were later acquitted. King Hassan, who praised the crew of the aircraft which resisted the attack on it while he was returning from a visit to Europe, last week promised elections in the next few months.
