Morocco gets US planes for Western Sahara patrol

The United States has delivered two Rockwell OV-10A Bronco counterinsurgency reconnaissance aircraft to Morocco for use in operations against Polisario Front guerrillas in the Western Sahara, an official American source said here. The Broncos, which are part of a package of $232.5 million worth of aircraft ordered by Morocco from the US a year ago, are designed to reinforce Morocco's military capability against the guerrillas, who have been fighting for the independence of the desert area for more than five years.
