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 the replacement of General Nehring by von Arnim and requests Möllhausen to be informed about Bizerte. He once again asks about the information on the possible release of the Desturian leadership from Marseille in order to establish armed Arab forces in Tunisia.
