  • Description

    THE ALGERIAN PEACE TALKS CONTINUED MARCH 13 FOR THE SEVENTH DAY AT EVIAN, ON THE FRENCH SIDE OF LAKE GENEVA. BEFORE THE FRENCH AND ALGERIAN NEGOTIATORS GOT DOWN TO WORK AGAIN, CAMERAMEN WERE ALLOWED INSIDE THE HEAVILY-GUARDED AND REQUISITIONED HOTEL TO FILM THE INSIDE OF THE CONFERENCE ROOM.

    AS USUAL, THE ALGERIAN DELEGATION FLEW OVER FROM THEIR HEADQUARTERS ON THE SWISS SIDE OF THE LAKE TO EVIAN BY SWISS ARMY HELICOPTERS, AMID FRENCH ARMOURED VEHICLES AND PATROLLING TROOPS. THE MAR 13 TALKS LASTED UNTIL LATE EVENING - TO IRON OUT REMAINING DIFFICULTIES IN THE IMMINENT CEASE-FIRE AND SELF-DETERMINATION AGREEMENTS. THE TALKS WERE EXPECTED TO LAST A FEW MORE DAYS IN THE SECRECY OF THE CONFERENCE ROOM, BUT THE ACTUAL SIGNING OF THE AGREEMENTS WILL BE OPEN TO ACCREDITED NEWSMEN.

    MEANWHILE IN FRANCE AND ALGERIA, INCREASED SECURITY MEASURES ARE IN FORCE TO BAULK FURTHER OAS TERRORISM BY BOMBS AND GUNS. IN ALGERIA, THE FEAR IS THAT A TOTAL STRIKE BY EUROPEANS WILL BRING REMAINING WORK IN THE COUNTRY TO A STANDSTILL, AND THAT WITH MOB VIOLENCE AND SABOTAGE WILL BE ATTACKS ON THE FRENCH SECURITY FORCE ELITE - THE GARDE MOBILE AND THE CRS ANTI-RIOT SQUADS.
