The Ambassador in France (Leahy) to the Secretary of State
[Received 9:19 a.m.]
193. We learned last night from a source which we consider thoroughly reliable that the French Government has entered into some form of accord with the Axis Powers whereby French ships are being used for the transport of munitions and supplies from France to Tunis, presumably destined for Rommel’s12 forces in Libya.
Repeated to London and Casablanca for Murphy.
