    Background: The Prime Minister of Morocco, Monsieur Ahmed Osman, arrived in Valetta, Malta on Wednesday (21 January) for a two-day official visit -- returning the one made by the Maltese Prime Minister, Mr. Dom Mintoff, to Morocco in November 1974.

    Sources in Malta say that the two ministers will discuss the situation in the Western Sahara. Pro-Government newspapers in Malta reported on Tuesday (20 January) that Mr. Mintoff is likely to be chosen as mediator in the dispute between Morocco and Algeria over the formerly Spanish-controlled Western Sahara.

    During his visit to Morocco Mr. Mintoff expressed his support for the Moroccan point of view on the Sahara.

    Recent reports from the Western Sahara accuse the Moroccan Air Force of using napalm in bombing raids on refugee camps near the Mauritanian border together with a widespread new strategy of aerial bombardment.

    The accusations came from a spokesman for the Polisario Front, the Algerian-backed independence movement which is now fighting a Moroccan and Mauritanian takeover in the territory.
