    Background: The Soviet newsagency, Tass, says Afghan forces loyal to the pro-Moscow government of Babrak Karmal have routed a group of rebels in Zabol Province, south of Kabul. Tass said a gang of murderers and terrorists had been crushed in the Kelat area.

    SYNOPSIS: This recent film, from Soviet Television, shows the trial in Kabul of twelve Afghan tribesmen. They were accused of terrorist activities and were said to have attacked civilians and members of the security forces.

    The trial came as Kabul Radio announced plans to strengthen Afghanistan's armed forces. This, the radio said, was to combat mounting dangers to the country's security. It gave no details of the planned measures, not did it elaborate on the security problems. At this trial, the prosecution displayed arms, ammunition and pamphlets said to have been in the defendants' possession. The Afghan newsagency said the weapons were of American, Chinese, Egyptian and Pakistani origin.

    The defendants were found guilty and were all sentenced to death. The Soviet reporter said the twelve accepted the verdict.
