    'Saracen' Armoured Personnel Carriers hitherto used by the Union of South Africa's army are now ready for use by the Johannesburg police.

    Police say the 'Saracens' should contribute to the bloodless handling of mobs. They bought eighty last month for better protection, received training at an army camp, and are now ready to control trouble in hitherto impenetrable outlying area. In the past, as many as 500 police stayed on the alert in Johannesburg during troubled weekends.
