  • Description

    THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER FORRESTAL AND FIVE DESTROYERS OF THE UNITED STATES SIXTH FLEET ARRIVED AT ISTANBUL YESTERDAY (MONDAY) AMID STRICT SECURITY PRECAUTIONS -- A SAFEGUARD AGAINST A REPEAT OF DEMONSTRATIONS IN WHICH A STUDENT DIED LAST JULY.

    BUT LATER 800 STUDENTS CLASHED WITH POLICE DEMANDING THE WITHDRAWAL OF TROOPS PROTECTING THE VISITING SHIPS.

    A HEAVY GUARD HAD BEEN PLACED ON PUBLIC BUILDINGS BECAUSE OF POSSIBLE ANTI-AMERICAN DEMONSTRATIONS DURING THE WEEK-LONG VISIT BY THE U.S. WARSHIPS.

    THREE PEOPLE WERE ARRESTED AFTER DEMONSTRATORS SMASHED THE WINDOWS OF THE TURKISH-AMERICAN BANK AND LAID A WREATH AT THE MONUMENT TO THE REPUBLIC.

    LAST JULY BLOODY CLASHES BROKE OUT BETWEEN THE POLICE AND DEMONSTRATORS WHEN A STUDENT FROM THE ISTANBUL TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY DIED DURING DEMONSTRATIONS OVER THE FLEET'S VISIT.

    AS WELL AS THE GUARD ON PUBLIC BUILDINGS TROOPS AND POLICE CORDONED OFF THE BOSPHOROUS LANDING STAGES WHERE THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER IS MORRED AND TURKISH PATROLS BOAT STOOD BY.

    THE FORRESTAL RETURNED TO SERVICE LAST YEAR AFTER BEING DAMAGED IN A FIRE OFF NORTH VIETNAM IN 1967 WHEN 134 CREW WERE KILLED.
