  • Description

    ONE MAN WAS INJURED IN A BOMB BLAST THAT DAMAGED THE RENAULT CAR-SHOWROOM AND IT'S ADJOINING RESTAURANT IN PARIS EARLY THIS MORNING (SUNDAY). POLICE BELIEVE THAT THE EXPLOSION WAS CAUSED BY A DELAYED ACTION BOMB, POSSIBLY LEFT IN ONE OF THE RESTAURANT'S TOILETS.

    THE EXPLOSION BLEW OUT ALL THE WINDOWS OF THE SHOWROOM WHICH IS ON THE CHAMPS ELYSEES IN THE CENTRE OF PARIS. THE INJURED MAN, M. JEAN CLAUDE LARRIVOIRE, WHO WAS SLEEPING IN A NEARBY FLAT, WAS WOUNDED IN THE FACE WHEN THE BLAST BLEW DOWN THE WALL OF HIS BEDROOM. IN THE SHOWROOM A 1907 VINTAGE RENAULT CAR WAS DAMAGED.

    THIS WAS THE FOURTH SUCH EXPLOSION IN PARIS THIS WEEKEND. AND ON FRIDAY A PLASTIC CHARGE EXPLODED OUTSIDE ONE OF THE RENAULT COMPANY'S BRANCHES IN BESCANCON IN EASTERN FRANCE.

    YESTERDAY GENERAL DE GAULLE DISCUSSED THE BOMB ATTACKS WITH M. RAYMOND MARCELLIN THE MINISTER OF THE INTERIOR.
