  • Description

    Following the ceasefire agreement at the Zimbabwe Rhodesia conference in London, Britain has asked the United States to help move military equipment into Salisbury for the Commonwealth 'monitoring' forces. it's thought that two CE-141 transport planes might be used, as Britain does not have any aircraft big enough to carry its own troop-carrying Puma helicopters. but all other equipment, as well as 600 British soldiers, will be flown out to Zimbabwe Rhodesia in R.A.F. Hercules planes. Four other Commonwealth countries will sent troops to form the thousand-strong monitoring force. They are from Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Kenya.

    SYNOPSIS: In Salisbury, initial delight at the news of the ceasefire agreement was later tempered by fears for the future. but for many blacks, the Patriotic Front guerrillas are heroes, and their return has been long-awaited.

    His views were echoed by other blacks -- but not all.
