    Background: De Gaulle has another touchy problem to handle in North Africa--- the problem of France's neighbor, Tunisia.

    The case is before the U. N. but the security council is holding off to see what De Gaulle can do.

    The Tunisians, who have won their freedom from France, are boiling mad over French attacks on their towns and villages. On the other hand, the French say these villages harbor Algerian rebels, who slip across the border to hide there. One such village is Remada, where the French recently carried out a vicious air attack. An NBC cameraman has visited Remada to make this film. The French now occupy the town, but it contained plenty of evidence of their attack...including houses with bullet holes in the walls. An automobile belonging to the local teacher was riddled with bullets and the teacher killed. The French had nailed up many of the houses to keep the cameraman from seeing the damage inside.
