    Background: The French-Tunisian dispute worsened, meantime...as Tunisia, hardened its demands for immediate withdrawal of 22,000 French troops. The French claim Tunisia has been aiding rebels in the neighbouring protectorate of Algeria...a situation that reached a tragic climax with the bombing of a Tunisian border village 10 days ago.

    All of Tunisia is aflame with prayer meetings and protests against the French. Both countries yesterday had accepted Anglo-French mediation offers and it had been hoped that an explosive Security Council session this afternoon would be averted...But Tunis last night renewed its demands that the French get out...apparently under the pressure of meetings such as this...

    Arab crowds milled through the streets and shouted threats at the French Embassy...part of the mounting anger that may force the Tunisian government to go through with its demands for a showdown.
