  • Description

    Dramatic new film flown in to London today shows the city of Jessore caught up in the turmoil and bloodshed of bitter internal warfare. VISNEWS cameraman Mohamed Amin was working with BBC reporter Alan Hart when he filmed these remarkable scenes, on Thursday (1 April)
    This film, which needs an on-camera introduction, includes an interview with the Commander of the Resistance Forces in Jessore, and an eye-witness account by Alan Hart. In view of the recent birth of film from the region, because of rigid censorship of press and television material, this is important first-hand evidence of the situation in East Pakistan. Some stations may wish to suggest to parents that the gruesome reprisal scenes of slaughter are perhaps not suitable for children to see.
