They clashed with fre Limo sympathizers in the capital and Lisbon radio reported that they had taken Over the City a Airport and its main radio station and were broadcasting proclamations pledging to keep Mozambique from fre Limo. The agreement called for a cease fire in the guerrilla War and a transitional government headed by a fre Limo nominee to run Mozambique until Independence Early next summer.
