  • Description

    In Tunisia the ruling Destour Socialist Party, general Workers Union and other national groups have organised large-scale blood donations for Arab casualties in the Middle East war.

    On Monday (October 8) - two days after the war started - President Habib Bourguiba announced on radio that Tunisia would be sending troops but he said they would take several days to reach the front.

    The President also urged his countrymen to avoid the racial violence in Tunis during the 196? Middle East war when thousands of angry Tunisians sacked the capital's Jewish quarter and set the main synagogue alight.

    Neighbouring Algeria has sent troops and air force units to the Egyptian front, and Moroccan, Iraqi and Saudi Arabian troops have been reported in action on the Syrian front.
