  • Description

    Belkacem Krim, Vice-Premier of the Algerian "provisional government", headed an eight-man delegation arriving by air in Geneva, May 18, for the Franco-Algerian peace talks due to start at Evian on the following day.

    Welcomed by M. Boulahrouf, the FLN emissary who has been having secret talks in Switzerland for several months, the Algerian delegates went by helicopter to the heavily guarded villa Bois d'Avault, which belongs to the Sheikh of Qatar.

    Four helicopters with Swiss pilots have arrived at the villa and made test flights to Evian, on the French shore of Lake Geneva, where the talks will be held at the Hotel du Parc. A motor launch is standing by as reserve transport, in case of bad flying conditions, at a nearby point on the Swiss shore of the lake.
