Diehards among the 80 man rebel band gave them- selves up at a.m. without firing a shot after receiving a surrender ultimatum from troops who ringed the tele- phone exchange they had seized shortly before midnight. Troops had trained a cannon on the building. Earlier the rest of the insurgents had surrendered less than five hours after they had seized the government radio station to broadcast claims they were taking over the gov- ernment.
