    ALGERIAN YESTERDAY (MONDAY) CELEBRATED THE SECOND ANNIVERSARY OF THE OVERTHROW OF AHMED BEN BELLA WITH A HUGE RALLY IN THE CENTRE OF THE CAPITAL ALGIERS.

    THE CELEBRATIONS WERE HEADED BY COLONEL HOUARI BOUMEDIANNE, THE ARMY LEADER WHO COMMANDED THE SUCCESSFUL COUP IN WHICH EX-PRESIDENT BEN BELLA WAS DEPOSED.

    TENS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE CROWDED INTO THE PLACE DE L'AFRIQUE IN ALGIERS TO HEAR COLONEL BOUMEDIENNE. HE SPOKE ABOUT THE RECENT CONFLICT IN THE MIDDLE EAST, AND MADE A FURTHER ATTACK AGAINST ALLEGED INTERVENTION BY BRITAIN AND THE UNITED STATES ON BEHALF OF ISRAEL.
