  • Description

    As an act of faith in the willingness of the Algerian Moslems to co-operate with the Public Safety Committee in Algeria, General Salan, the military commander in Algeria, has ordered the release of 1,447 Moslems prisoners convicted of minor offences.

    Here we see the detention centre of Tefechoun, 35 miles from Algeria, where those being released are watched from behind a barbed wire fence by least fortunate inmates. Later they may be pardoned also, for it has been unofficially announced that the military intends dissolving the camp.
