    ON THURSDAY 21 SUSPECTED MEMBERS OF THE ADEN POLITICAL GROUP FLOSY - FRONT FOR THE LIBERATION OF OCCUPIED SOUTH YEMEN - WERE RELEASED BY BRITISH SECURITY AUTHORITIES. IMMEDIATELY AFTER THEIR RELEASE, THE FLOSY MEMBERS WERE FLOWN BY SPECIAL AIRCRAFT TO CAIRO.

    SHORTLY AFTERWARDS TEN MORE DETAINEES - THE LAST COUP OF SUSPECTED ANTI-BRITISH TERRORISTS STILL IN CUSTODY - WERE RELEASED. THEY WERE MEMBERS OF THE RIVAL NATIONAL LIBERATION FRONT - NLF - WHICH HAS NOT ESTABLISHED ITSELF AS THE POLITICAL POWER IN ADEN.

    THE FLOSY MEMBERS WERE FLOWN TO CAIRO UNDER AN ARRANGEMENT WORKED OUT BY RED CROSS INTERNATIONAL. A SENIOR REPRESENTATIVE OF THE RED CROSS INTERNATIONAL, MR. ANDRE ROCHAT, SUPERVISED THE TRANSPORT OF THE FLOSY MEMBERS TO KHORMAKSAR AND ACCOMPANIED THEM TO THE AIRCRAFT.

    MR. ROCHAT ALSO WATCHED OVER THE RELEASE OF THE NLF MEMBERS. BRITAIN HAS BEEN RELEASING DETAINEES AS THE DATE FOR SOUTH ARABIAN INDEPENDENCE - NOVEMBER 30 - DRAWS NEARER.
