  • Description

    The first airline passengers from the Guinean capital of Conakry since the start of the weekend's reported invasion of the country, arrived in Abidjan on Monday (23rd November). Reporters at Abidjan airport asked some of the passengers for their impressions of the situation. The aircraft had been on a through flight which stopped at Conakry.

    The French passengers interviewed said they had seen little from the aircraft and were not allowed to get out and look round. Another French passenger said he did not believe all he had heard about the reported invasion by foreign mercenaries.

    Another passenger interviewed was a West German, Herr Deuringer, who had been wounded by an explosion near his house in Conakry. He told a reporter he and his family had been shot at with a bazooka. Herr Deuringer's wife was also injured by the blast, but their child was unharmed.

    A West German has been killed on Conakry, Count Ulf von Tiesenhausen, an employee of a West German business firm.

    President Sekou Toure of Guinea called on Wednesday (25 November) for immediate help from outside Africa to defeat what he called "Portugal's imperialist aggression."
