    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:



    Meanwhile, attention in Beirut has shifted to the thorny problem of collecting the heavy arms used by the rival factions in the Lebanese war. A four-power Arab committee which is supervising the present ceasefire has set midnight next Wednesday as the deadline for the surrender of heavy weapons, ranging from tanks and mortars to recoilless rifles and machine guns. A statement issued by the committee has said troops of the Arab league peacekeeping force, made up mainly of Syrian regulars, would be asked to storm any place where heavy arms were being hidden after the deadline.

    Background: The government of President Elias Sarkis issued a decree establishing a national organisation to underwrite investments in Lebanon on Saturday (8 January)
    SYNOPSIS: The decree came after a four-hour cabinet meeting at the Republican Palace near Beirut. The new organisation is to insure investments by commercial enterprises, international missions and charitable, health and cultural incitations.

    The government ministers decided it would cover material damage proved to have occurred as the result of war and civil strife. The move is part of the government's efforts to rebuild the country after the 19-month long civil war, estimated to have caused losses of up to five billion U.S. dollars.
