  • Description

    Elaborate security measures, which swung into action in Paris, January 29th,
    revealed the determination of the French government to stamp out the
    current wave of terrorism.

    Special motorised night patrols of republican security guards stopped and
    searched nearly 10,000 vehicles, guarded important buildings ,questioned
    thousands of people at random and checked their identity cards.

    Guards on these anti secret army duties have been given government
    authority to open fire without warning on anyone refusing orders to halt.

    Security forces in the city have been reinforced by 500 specially trained
    men of the republican guard.

    The stringent precautions follow the increase in terrorism by raiders of
    the secret army organisation , the extremist right wing Algerian group
    which has been blamed for up to seventeen plastic bomb explosions
    in one night throughout Paris.
