  • Description

    Canadian Norman Phillips, foreign editor of the "Toronto Daily Star", arrives at London Airport, Apr 14 after his release in Durban two days earlier.

    The 44-year-old journalist, who began reporting the South African scene on Mar 24, was arrested in Durban, Apr 8, after sending a dispatch to Toronto, which "in the opinion of the South African Government would have done serious damage to South Africa-Canadian relations." The dispatch was intercepted and has not yet been published.

    Detained under the emergency regulations, Mr Phillips was finally released upon strong representations by the Canadian High Commissioner in South Africa, on condition that he would leave the country immediately.
