  • Description

    Algerian terrorists attacked five Paris police stations at night Oct 23, wounding 14 auxiliary policemen, some of them of North African extraction.

    One terrorist band involved made their escape in this taxi, later found wrecked. Several bands armed with sub-machine guns, hand-grenades and pistols, attacked the police stations, damaging walls.

    Though shots were exchanged, Sunday home-going Parisians escaped injury. Immediate search began throughout the city for the attackers. While police caught the Algerians driving at high speed in the taxi, another patrol, from one of the stations under fire, chased their attackers into an underground station. More shots were exchanged, this time along the platform but the terrorists jumped into a train and escaped.

    The toll: two terrorists killed, three injured and 90 suspects arrested.
