  • Description

    ALGIERS IS RETURNING TO NORMAL AFTER THE COUP LAST SATURDAY WEEK AND THE COLLAPSE OF THE AFRO-ASIAN SUMMIT CONFERENCE. THE ALGERIAN CAPITAL IS CALM, BUT REPORTS SAY THERE IS STILL A STRONG UNDERCURRENT OF SUPPORT FOR THE DEPOSED PRESIDENT AHMED BEN BELLA.

    IN ALGIERS' NOISY MARKET, IT IS BUSINESS AS USUAL. AFTER THE CONFUSION FOLLOWING THE COUP, COMMERCIAL LIFE IS SETTLING DOWN ONCE AGAIN AS THE NEW REVOLUTIONARY COUNCIL, LED BY ARMY CHIEF COLONEL HOUARI BOUMEDIENNE, TAKES OVER.

    GENERAL STRIKES HAVE BEEN THREATENED AS A PROTEST AGAINST THE COUP, BUT NOW THEY HAVE BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL "NEXT MONTH." AFTER THE MONTHS OF PREPARATIONS FOR THE CONFERENCE - IT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL NOVEMBER 5 - THE CITY IS WEARING A CLEANER, PRETTIER FACE.

    FOR A WHILE AFTER PRESIDENT BEN BELLA'S DOWNFALL, THE CITY WAS CLOSED TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD. NOW TRANSPORT AND COMMUNICATIONS ARE BACK TO NORMAL.
