    Background: When the troopship Koutobia reached Casablanca recently with French troops returning from leave in France, the Moroccan Government refused permission for them to land.

    The Moroccans have become increasingly anxious in view of the situation in neighbouring Algeria, and wants all French troops to get out. The refusal to allow these troops to land may be the beginning of French troop evacuation.

    While negotiations were in progress the troops on board the Koutobia relaxed along the rails of the decks and generally took thing easily.
