A peace plan intended to end rule by militia in Beirut’s mostly Muslim western sector is due to take effect today after the arrival of five military observers from Syria to supervise the accord. The five Syrians are to work with a coordinating committee of Muslim political leaders, army officers and militia commanders. The peace plan, which calls for disarming and disbanding all Muslim militias, was adopted in Damascus last week by Syrian officials and Lebanese Muslim leaders.
