    Background: Journalists recently received an invitation from the Moroccan Government to visit the refugee camp at Goulimine, only ten miles from the Ifni frontier.

    From Ifni (Spanish territory) have come some 6,300 refugees, 2,000 of them women. There are also over 2,000 children, as well as some 1100 aged men and invalids.

    From the Sahara territory are an additional 6,126 refugees many in dire need.

    No help as so far been forthcoming from the International Red Cross, but the refugees are being fed and cared for by the Royal Moroccan Army.

    The refugees from the Sahara spoke of bombing and straffing by Spanish aircraft of farmers and cattle, and also the use of poison gas.

    It is reported that the situation has enforced the cancellation of operations by Spanish airlines between Spain and Morocco.

    Spanish newspapers reported yesterday that a two-week-old "all quiet" has prevailed in the embattled Spanish Sahara, invaded late last year by the irregular Moroccan Army of Liberation.

    The dispatches, sent from the Canary Islands, which lie off Spanish Africa, quoted Spanish Army Lieut-General Jose Maria Lopez Valencia to that effect.
