The Moroccan government and Polisario Front guerrillas conditionally approved U.N. peace proposals for the Western Sahara, raising the prospect of an end to almost 13 years of war in the desert territory. A U.N. spokesman said in Geneva that the two sides had accepted a plan calling for a cease-fire and a U.N.-supervised referendum on self-determination in the former Spanish colony. Contents of the plan were not disclosed, and both sides reportedly expressed reservations over details.

An Israeli naval patrol seized a small merchant vessel off the Lebanese coast that was ferrying 50 Palestinian guerrillas to Lebanon, an Israeli military spokesman said Saturday. He said that the ship was forced to go to an Israeli port after its seizure early Friday and that the passengers were arrested for carrying false passports. All of the suspected guerrillas belonged to Fatah, Yasser Arafat's main faction in the Palestine Liberation Organization, the Israeli military spokesman said.

The half-dozen men and women, clutching AK-47 rifles and wearing masks, marched into the center of the mountain hamlet just outside Mexico City. As peasants gawked, one rebel called out: "People of San Francisco, we are the Armed Revolutionary Forces of the People. We call on you to join us in armed struggle." Thus emerged Mexico's newest guerrilla group.
