  • Description

    WITH THE FINAL ROUND OF PEACE TALKS BETWEEN FRANCE AND THE ALGERIAN REBEL GOVERNMENT EXPECTED TO BEGIN SHORTLY, NEARLY ONE THOUSAND EXTRA REPUBLICAN SECURITY GUARDS HAVE BEEN MOVED INTO PARIS, MARCH 2. ANOTHER SECURITY MOVE HAS BEEN MADE AT THE CITY'S LANDMARK, THE EIFFEL TOWER, WHERE IRON MESH ANTI-GRENADE NETTING HAS BEEN ERECTED TO PROTECT THE TELEVISION INSTALLATIONS.

    TO GUARD AGAINST POSSIBLE OUTRAGES BY THE TERRORIST O.A.S., (ORGANISATION OF THE SECRET ARMY), A CLOSE WATCH HAS BEEN MAINTAINED CONTINUALLY AT THE TOWER. THIS GUARD HAS NOW BEEN STRENGTHENED, AND THE PAVEMENTS NEAR THE BASE HAVE BEEN CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC BY THE ERECTION OF METAL BARRIERS.

    ON MARCH 2, THERE WERE PLASTIC BOMB EXPLOSIONS IN THE CAPITAL. NO ONE WAS KILLED. THE CONCIERGES IN BLOCKS OF FLATS HAVE BEEN WARNED BY THE POLICE TO BE ON THEIR GUARD WHEN STRANGERS ARE MAKING ENQUIRIES, ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY WANT TO DEPOSIT PACKAGES. THE SECURITY REINFORCEMENTS HAVE BEEN BROUGHT IN TO STRENGTHEN THE GUARD ON PUBLIC BUILDINGS, AND ON PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN ALLOTTED PROTECTION AFTER RECEIVING O.A.S THREATS.

    IN ALGERIA, MORE THAN FIFTY PEOPLE, MOSTLY MOSLEMS, WERE KILLED MARCH 2, TO END ONE OF THE BLOODIEST WEEKS OF TERRORISM SINCE THE WAR IN ALGERIA BEGAN.
