A new HCR (Higher Commissioner for Refugees) -led family visit exchange was organized, on Friday, by the UN mission in the Sahara (MINURSO) between family members living in Morocco's Southern Provinces, The Sahara, and their relatives in the Polisario-run Tindouf camps, south-western Algeria.



   Thirty-one people from twelve families from the southern province of Smara flew to the Tindouf camps in the morning, while thirty-three members of nine families traveled from these camps to Smara, a press release of the Moroccan Office of Coordination with MINURSO said.

    Since their launch on March 5, 2004, the Sahrawi family visits exchange benefited some 5,012 people, 2,634 of whom live in the Tindouf Camps.

    Polisario is a separatist movement that lays claims to Morocco's Southern Provinces, known as The Sahara, a territory which Morocco had retrieved from Spanish rule under the Madrid Accord, signed in 1975 with Spain and Mauritania. A year later, Polisario lured thousands of Moroccan Sahrawis into joining it in the Tindouf camps where they have been held against their will ever since.
