  • Description

    ALGIERS UNIVERSITY REOPENED TODAY (SATURDAY) BUT STUDENTS SAID THEY WOULD CONTINUE THEIR STRIKE UNTIL ALL STUDENTS THEY CLAIM WERE ARRESTED LAST NIGHT WERE RELEASED. THE UNIVERSITY CLOSED YESTERDAY AFTER A ONE-DAY STRIKE BY THE 8,000 STUDENTS TO PROTEST AGAINST WHAT THEY CONSIDER TO BE ATTEMPTS TO IMPOSE A GOVERNMENT-SPONSORED LEADERSHIP ON THEM.

    STUDENT SOURCES SAID THIS MORNING THAT 22 OF THE 25 STUDENTS ARRESTED IN A POLICE SWOOP LAST NIGHT WERE LATER RELEASED. THE THREE STILL DETAINED, THEY SAID, BELONGED TO THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE OF THE ALGIERS SECTION OF THE NATIONAL UNION OF ALGERIAN STUDENTS WHICH CALLED THE STRIKE.

    THE STUDENT'S STRIKE ACTION FOLLOWED A DEMAND BY THE LEADER OF ALGERIA'S RULING F.L.N. PARTY, M. KAID AHMED, THAT HOLD ELECTIONS IN THE STUDENT UNION LATER THIS MONTH UNDER PARTY SUPERVISION.
