  • Description

    WHILE ARMED ARAB NATIONALISTS STILL HOLD THE CRATER DISTRICT OF ADEN, BRITISH MARINES MOVED IN YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) TO TAKE POSITIONS OVERLOOKING THE BARRICADED CRATER AREA.

    BRITISH MILITARY AUTHORITIES WITHDREW BRITISH TROOPS FROM CRATER AFTER 22 SOLDIERS HAD BEEN KILLED AND 30 WOUNDED DURING THE ARAB ARMY MUTINY WHICH BEGAN ON TUESDAY.

    ARMED NATIONALISTS TOOK OVER THE CRATER AREA, WHERE THE MUTINY BEGAN IN A POLICE BARRACKS. THE MAIN PASS ROAD LEADING INTO THE AREA WAS BARRICADED WITH BUSES AND ARAB SNIPERS WERE ACTIVE.

    BRITISH MARINES HOWEVER, TOOK POSITIONS OVERLOOKING THE PASS AND THE CRATER AREA. SO FAR, THEY HAVE MADE NO MOVE INTO THE DISTRICT, FOR FEAR OF CAUSING FURTHER BLOODSHED IN WHAT IS ALREADY ADEN'S BLOODIEST EPISODE.

    YESTERDAY, ARABS RETURNED THE BODIES OF A NUMBER OF BRITISH TROOPS WHO HAD BEEN KILLED IN EARLIER CLASHES. A DYNAMITE EXPLOSION BLEW A HOLE IN A BIG OIL STORAGE TANK AND THREE CARS AND A SHOP WERE SET ON FIRE IN CONTINUED DISTURBANCES.
