    Background: THE SEVENTH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ALGERIAN REBELLION WAS CELEBRATED WITH VIOLENCE IN ORAN, ALGERIA, NOVEMBER IST.

    TEAR GAS BOMBS EXPLODED, AND DEMONSTRATORS AND POLICE WERE INVOLVED IN CLASHES THROUGHOUT THE CITY, AS MEN WOMEN AND CHILDREN MARCHED WITH FLN (NATIONALIST LIBERATION FRONT) AND OTHER BANNERS. ONE DEMONSTRATOR WAS KILLED IN ORAN.

    IT WAS IN THE SMALLER TOWNS, WHERE SECURITY FORCES LACKED STRENGTH, THAT MANY OF THE REPORTED 76 DEATHS OCCURRED. MEDIA, BLIDA, BATNA, OUENZA, ALL HAD HEAVY CASUALTIES.

    A MORNING OF RIGIDLY CONTROLLED DEMONSTRATIONS IN THE MUSLIM QUARTERS OF THE CITIES HAD BEEN CALLED BY THE NATIONALIST LEADERS TO REINFORCE THEIR DEMANDS FOR INDEPENDENCE THROUGH NEGOTIATION - AS OUTLINED BY BENYOUSSEF BENKHEDDA AT A RECENT PRESS CONFERENCE.
