Telegram from Rahn to the Foreign Ministry, informing them about the peaceful disarmament of Bizerte and demobilization of its troops (French and Senegalese), which aren´t estimated to be suitable for incorporation into Axis forces. Also mentions replacement of General Nehring by von Arnim, thereby the transfer of command to the 5th tank division too and requests Moellhausen to be informed about Bizerte, as well as information about the possible release of the Destourian leader from Marseille in order to establish armed Arab forces.
