A United Nations-supervised cease-fire went into effect in the disputed Western Sahara as about 100 U.N. peacekeepers from 16 countries were deployed in the region. The mineral-rich desert territory, formerly a colony of Spain known as the Spanish Sahara, is claimed by Morocco and the Polisario guerrilla front, which has been fighting for independence since 1975. The U.N. contingent will be expanded to 1,700 troops during the coming weeks.
