    Background: ONE OF THE THREE COLUMNS OF PRO-BEN BELLA TROOPS MARCHING ON ALGIERS LAST MONDAY WAS ADVANCING IN THE AREA OF BERROUAGHIA, SOME SEVENTY MILES SOUTH OF THE ALGERIAN CAPITAL.

    MEN OF WILLAYA 6, SUPPORTING VICE-PRESIDENT BEN BELLA'S POLITBURO, ARE SEEN MOVING NORTH IN A COLUMN OF HEAVY TRUCKS. MEANWHILE, WILLAYA 4 TROOPS ARE STANDING BY IN DEFENSIVE POSITIONS, THEN FALLING BACK ON DEFENSES FURTHER NORTH.

    REPORTS FROM MEDIA PREFECTURE SAID THE ADVANCING FORCES OF WILLAYA 6, THE SAHARA MILITARY REGION, HAD REACHED THE BERROUAGHIA AREA AFTER OUSTING WILLAYA 4 FROM TWO NEARBY VILLAGES. IN AN ATTEMPT TO SLOW DOWN THE ADVANCE, WILLAYA 4 HAD DESTROYED SEVERAL BRIDGES ON THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY BETWEEN BOGHARI AND MEDIA.

    BOGHARI, 100 MILES SOUTH OF ALGIERS, WAS OCCUPIED EARLIER BY FORCES OF THE POLITBURO, APPARENTLY WITHOUT FIGHTING. THE WILLAYA 4 COMMAND WAS THEN SAID TO BE PREPARING FOR A STAND AT BERROUAGHIA.

    THE PREFECT OF MEDIA ALSO REPORTED THAT TROOPS BOTH OF WILLAYA 4 AND WILLAYA 6 HAD BEEN GREETED BY VILLAGERS WITH DEMONSTRATIONS DEMANDING PEACE.

    (THE POPULAR CALL FOR PEACE WAS FINALLY HEARD LAST NIGHT, WHEN AGREEMENT ON A CEASEFIRE WAS REACHED BETWEEN THE POLITBURD AND THEN DISSIDENT MILITARY COMMANDERS. THEIR GUERRILLA FORCES ARE NOW TO BE CONVERTED INTO A NATIONAL ARMY - AS PROPOSED BY M. BEN BELLA BEFORE THE ARMED CONFLICT BEGAN.)
