Background: Palestine Commandos were yesterday (Tuesday) told not to carry weapons during an anti-King Hussein demonstration in Beirut. The warning came as several hundred people marched through the city in protest over measures taken by the Jordanian leader and his army against the Palestine Commandos. Soon after the warning the arms disappeared and the demonstration continued without incident.
