  • Description

    French revolutionary writer Regis Debray, who was released in December by the Bolivian authorities after serving 44 months of a 30-year sentence for collaboration with guerrillas, arrived in Algeria on Wednesday (31 March) on a surprise visit.

    The following day he had talks with M. Messaadia, an official of the information department of the ruling National Liberation Front Party. There was no immediate indication of M. Debray's reason for visiting Algeria or his future plans.

    After his release from prison, M. Debray travelled first to Chile, then to Cuba, which he had first visited ten years earlier as a philosophy student and from where he had travelled to Bolivia to join Che Guevara in his short-lived guerrilla campaign.

    When Regis Debray arrived in Havana in February, ii was reported that he intended to settle there permanently. It is not clear whether his present visit to Algeria indicates any change of plan.
