  • Description

    Doctors at a hospital in Tindouf, on the Algerian side of the border with Western Sahara, have been treating a number of children said to have been injured in a raid by Moroccan aircraft.

    The Algerian-backed Polisario Front has issued a statement claiming that the children's injuries were caused by napalm bombs.

    The Front said that the attack took place on February 19th and that 35 women and children were killed. It added that 300 more suffered napalm burns.

    The Polisario is fighting Moroccan and Mauritanian rule over the phosphate-rich Western Sahara.

    It proclaimed a republic on Friday night ( 27 February) in what it said were the liberated territories of the former Spanish colony.

    It said the new republic, the Saharan Arab Democratic Republic, will be ruled by a revolutionary council and a government but it did not say where they would be seated.
