  • Description

    About 50 demonstrators, assembled on United Nations Plaza at 43rd St., got out of hand after the scene at the UN. They denounced the slaying of Lumumba and screamed epithets against "Western Imperialism."
    Some 30 patrolmen, afoot and on horseback, swing into action as objects were thrown at UN guards.

    Demonstrators were being ejected after they interrupted a Security Council debate from the public gallery.

    The debate was on Russia's demand for the dismissal of Mr. Hammarskjoeld following the announcement from Katanga of deposed Premier Lumumba's death.
