Western Sahara: Polisario Front says police chief killed by Morocco army

479

The Polisario Front’s police chief has been killed in the disputed Western Sahara region, a statement from the separatists said Wednesday.

“The commander of the national gendarmerie Addah al-Bendir fell on Tuesday as a martyr on the field of honour,” the pro-independence movement’s defence ministry said in a statement.

He “was on a military mission in the liberated zone of Rouss Irni, in Tifariti,” located in the north in Polisario-controlled territory, it added, without elaborating on the circumstances surrounding his death.

Western Sahara is a former Spanish colony, mostly under Rabat’s control, where tensions between Morocco and the Polisario Front have simmered since the 1970s.
