Background: Ten school buses were destroyed by dynamite late on Monday night in a raid on a bus depot in Pontiac, Michigan. The buses were to have been used when school resumed next week to transport children from different racial neighbourhoods to integrated schools.
In recent weeks rallies have been staged in Pontiac protesting against the proposed scheme. Anti-busing rallied have been addressed by leading local citizens and state legislators. The buses destroyed in the bomb attack were valued at about ten thousand dollars each.
