  • Description

    On May 13- third anniversary of the 1958 Algiers uprising - several people were injured when four plastic bombs exploded in Paris. The outrages were attributed to right-wing extremists.

    In the afternoon, a bomb went off at No. 5, Avenue de l'Opera, causing damage to the offices of the Radical-Socialist Party. Five people were hurt: the caretaker, his wife and two children, and a passer-by.

    One and a half hours later, another plastic charge wrecked part of the offices of the left-wing newspaper "France-Observateur" - in the Rue des Pyramides, only some 60 yards away. The explosion started a fire, and falling debris injured an American woman tourist passing by in the street below.

    In the morning, damage was caused by two other bombs - one in the arcade of the Palais Royal building near the Louvre, the second in front of a house in the Mont??? district where a councillor of the Gaullist UNR party lives. There were no casualties in these incidents.
