October 23, 1987

A planned protest march in Panama City by government opponents failed to materialize after more than 1,000 police and soldiers in battle garb took up positions before dawn along the capital's main streets.

Manuel A. Noriega. President Eric A. Delvalle and his Cabinet had issued a communique prohibiting the march on grounds that it was an attempt "to subvert public order."
