  • Description

    IN ORAN, AS ELSEWHERE IN THE MAIN TOWN OF ALGERIA, FRENCH TROOPS KEEP UP CONSTANT SEARCH OF CARS, CHECKING THE OCCUPANTS' IDENTITY, TO PREVENT OAS TERRORISM AS THE CEASE-FIRE TALKS AT EVIAN CONTINUE.

    THESE SECURITY CHECKS ARE MADE AT BARBED-WIRE BARRICADES SET UP ACROSS ROADS WHILE OTHER TROOPS WITH GUNS AT THE READY PATROL PAVEMENTS ON BOTH SIDES.

    INCREASED SECURITY MEASURES IN ALGERIA AND FRANCE ARE IN FORCE. TO HALT THE RISING TIDE OF BOMB AND GUN KILLINGS AND ARMED ROBBERIES.

    A FURTHER FEAR IS THAT A CEASE-FIRE AGREEMENT BETWEEN FRANCE AND THE FLN MAY PROVOKE A TOTAL STRIKE BY EUROPEANS, MOB VIOLENCE AND SABOTAGE BY THE OAS IN ALGERIA.
