Bachir Hammed slipped away from a guerrilla-sponsored soccer team during an overseas tour. With the declining fortunes of the Marxist-led Polisario independence movement in the Western Sahara, more and more guerrillas are deserting the movement and drifting back across the desert to join the Moroccan side.

For months, Lazhari had been locked in his home in Algeria, faxing articles to his newspaper, enduring death threats from Islamic militants and battling the muzzle of government censors.
