In Amman the last guerrillas are moving out following cease fire agreements worked out through Egyptian mediators between the guerrillas and the Jordanian Army. And as they leave units of the Jordanian Army are clearing up the city streets which were the scene of bitter fighting a week ago.
Although the cease-fire between King Hussein of Jordan and the revisionary leader Yasser Arafat was negotiated on Sunday, it has taken several days for its implementation in the side streets of Amman and other Jordanian towns where guerrillas were holding out.
The Egyptian mediators have persuaded the guerrillas in Amman that the shooting is all over and the guerrillas are moving out, still armed.
The Jordanian Army is waiting to take over each area as the guerrillas put out. And although there have been reports of isolated shots being fired, the truce is being observed on both sides.
Soldiers are clearing up the debris of shops and buildings damaged during the fighting and the city is returning to peace if not to normality.
