    A FIRST BATCH ON TUESDAY WAS RELEASED AT OUJDA -- OVER 300 ALGERIANS OF WHOM 133 WERE WOUNDED.

    ORIGINALLY THEIR TRAIN FROM RABAT TO FREEDOM WAS TO HAVE STOPPED EXACTLY ON THE BORDER, EAST OF OUJDA. BUT OVER A DISAGREEMENT ON EXCHANGE PROCEDURE, THEIR TRAIN WENT BACK TO OUJDA.

    OFFICIALS OF THE INTERNATIONAL RED CROSS AND THE RED CROSS ORGANISATION OF MOROCCO AND ALGERIA SUPERVISED THEIR RELEASE.

    52 MOROCCAN PRISONERS OF WAR WERE ALSO EXCHANGED ON WEDNESDAY -- RETURNING IN TIME FOR AID EL KEBIR, THE MOSLEM RELIGIOUS FESTIVAL NEXT WEEK.

    (THE MOROCCAN CABINET UNDER KING HUSSEIN MET ON WEDNESDAY TO REVIEW THE BORDER DISPUTE WITH ALGERIA. AND AN INQUIRY COMMISSION IS DUE TO BEGIN ITS WORK ON THE DISPUTE AT BAMAKO AT THE END OF THE MONTH.)
