  • Description

    On the second day of his Algerian tour, General de Gaulle visited Cherchell, west of Algiers, Dec 10. He was booed by Europeans (shouting "Algeria is French") and cheered by Moslems (shouting "Algeria is Algerian").

    Once again, he brushed aside security on this brief visit to Cherchell. He went from one side of the road to the other, mingling with the crowd and shaking hands. He also addressed Army men.

    Apart from the booing and cheering, his visit there was without incident. He is spending five fateful days in Algeria as a prelude to the referendum that will decide the future of Algeria.
