  • Description

    STUDENTS WERE STILL HELPING TO RUN THE ESSENTIAL SERVICES IN ALGIERS MAY 9 IN AN EFFORT TO DEFEAT THE SYSTEMATIC CAMPAIGN BY THE OAS TO BRING THE CITY TO A STANDSTILL.

    THE OAS HAVE DIRECTED TERRORIST ACTIVITIES AGAINST MOSLEM DUSTMEN, STREET CLEANERS, GARAGE-HANDS, DOCKERS AND STALL HOLDERS. MANY OF THEM HAVE STAYED AWAY FROM WORK IN FEAR OF DEATH AND STUDENTS HAVE TAKEN THEIR PLACE IN MARKETS, GARAGES AND REFUSE LORRIES.

    BUT THE STUDENT'S EFFORTS WERE NOT HAVING THE DESIGNED EFFECT. THERE WERE NOT ENOUGH OF THEM TO GO ROUND AND MANY SERVICES IN THE CITY MAY SOON GRIND TO A HALT.

    INDISCRIMINATE, INDIVIDUAL ACTS OF MURDER BY THE OAS WERE INTENSIFIED IN BOTH ALGIERS AND ORAN MAY 10. AFTER 16 MOSLEMS HAD BEEN KILLED IN ORAN THE PREFECT OF POLICE BROADCAST AN APPEAL TO THE MOSLEMS NOT TO ENTER THE EUROPEAN QUARTER WHERE THEY COULD NOT BE PROTECTED.
