    Background: BRITISH FORCES ARE CONTINUING THEIR OPERATIONS IN MAURITIUS, THE BRITISH ISLAND COLONY IN THE INDIAN OCEAN WHERE TODAY (MONDAY) THE COST OF COMMUNAL RIOTING REACHED 24 DEAD.

    THE VIOLENT RIOTING THAT THREATENED A COMPLETE BREAKDOWN IN LAW AND ORDER LAST WEEK AND RESULTED IN BRITISH TROOPS BEING FLOWN TO THE ISLAND FROM SINGAPORE, HAS DIED DOWN.

    BUT THERE ARE STILL ISOLATED FIGHTS BETWEEN MOSLEMS AND CREOLES, AND THE BRITISH SOLDIERS ARE CONTINUING THEIR OPERATIONS, WORKING CLOSELY WITH THE LOCAL POLICE AND SPECIAL MOBILE FORCE.

    OUR FILM SHOWS ONE SECURITY PATROL SEARCHING A VILLAGE JUST OUTSIDE PORT LOUIS, THE CAPITAL. THEY'D SUSPECTED THERE WERE ARMS HIDDEN IN THE ARE, BUT FOUND NOTHING.
